LAS VEGAS (Oct. 11, 2023) – United Way of Southern Nevada has launched Young Leaders Society, a giving group that unites and inspires today’s young professionals to become tomorrow’s philanthropic leaders. The goal of UWSN’s Young Leaders Society is to create a network of young professionals and humanitarians in Southern Nevada that are dedicated to serving and creating opportunities for success in the community.

“UWSN’s Young Leaders Society is paving the way for young professionals who have a passion for creating a meaningful impact in the community we are proud to call home,” said Chad Kaercher, YLS Committee Chair and Associate Vice Principal at Marsh. “Through networking events, volunteer opportunities, and innovative trainings, we leverage the power of UWSN to give, advocate, and volunteer. We look forward to welcoming new members to UWSN’s YLS.”

“As a proud Las Vegas native, I carry with me a belief in the transformative power we hold to uplift our community,” stated Colin Janison, YLS Committee Vice Chair and Portfolio Manager and Analyst at Endowment Partners, LLC. “Through my involvement in UWSN’s Young Leaders Society, I’ve witnessed the incredible impact our generation can create.”

As a network of young professionals, ages 21 to 40, who share a passion for advancing community solutions in Southern Nevada, UWSN’s YLS hosts monthly volunteer opportunities and quarterly events to connect community minded professionals. The next YLS volunteer service project will be held on October 25, 2023, to volunteer for UWSN’s partner, Green Our Planet’s Fall Giant Student Farmers Market at the Clark County Government Center Amphitheater. To sign up for this volunteer project, community members can contact fundraising@uwsn.org.
