Emerging Leaders Live United

Join Emerging Leaders in fighting poverty

Emerging Leaders is a group of tomorrow’s leaders supporting United Way for Greater Austin. Members have a passion for philanthropy, advocacy, volunteerism, and community. Through meaningful volunteer opportunities and networking events, members make connections with other local leaders who all believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the promise of Austin.

Why Join?

1 in 10 households in the Austin area is considered low-income, and race and zip code are some of the biggest predictors of a person’s life outcomes. Members are helping build a better Austin that works for everyone by investing in the building blocks of opportunity that every person and community needs to thrive – education, health, and financial stability. 

When you join Emerging Leaders, you’ll have opportunities to network and collaborate with a diverse group of influential business and community leaders at exclusive events, all while learning about critical local issues and impactful local solutions.

Emerging Leaders members have access to exclusive volunteer and advocacy opportunities. Volunteer with our partner organizations along with other neighbors looking to create change, and advocate for key community issues at the local and state level.

Join Us

As a member of Emerging Leaders, you’ll be invited to volunteering, advocacy, networking, professional development, and educational opportunities throughout the year. Give $250 annually (or $21 per month) to become a member or $500 annually (or $42 per month) to join the Emerging Leaders Leadership Circle.
