United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley has six programs: Youth Council, Youth Camp, Women United, Stuff The Bus, Read United, and Emerging Leaders United.
United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley’s two youth programs are United Way Youth Council (UWYC) and Youth Camp. UWYC is a student-led community change organization that operates on a yearly basis. With support from United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley and representatives from each participating school, students in UWYC help impact the community, grow as leaders, and develop relationships within the non-profit sector.
Youth Camp is an annual three-day event in February for 7th graders that gives them a chance to get involved with local non-profits.
Women United is a network of dynamic women leaders who are committed to engagement in the community through the works and programs of United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley.
Stuff The Bus is our annual school supply drive in which United Way partners with local companies and the community at large to donate, collect, sort, and distribute supplies to local schools with the greatest need. A total of 5,226 backpacks were filled with school supplies for Stuff The Bus 2017.
United Way’s Read United program pairs community and corporate volunteers with third graders to help get them on track with grade-level literacy.
Emerging Leaders United (ELU) recognizes young leaders who value the importance of philanthropy and believe in and support the work of United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley. Individuals under the age of 40 who make a yearly gift of $365 or more are eligible to join.
