Training Tomorrow's Leaders to Build a United Tri-County


We'll connect you to like-minded people who want to make a difference in our community

Lead United is a comprehensive community leadership and nonprofit board development program of Trident United Way. The purpose of Lead United is to equip participants with necessary skills to serve on a nonprofit board of directors. This six week program focuses on educating professionals and skill-building for board-level service opportunities. Additionally, participants will increase their understanding of community challenges for deeper engagement. During the program, participants will hear from content experts at Trident United Way and a myriad of community partners and current nonprofit board members.

Benefits of the Program

Our commitment to you is that you will walk away from this experience with more insight into the issues affecting the Tri-County region, and prepared to serve on a nonprofit board as well as learning about and developing new parts of your own leadership skill set. Lead United Participants completing five or more sessions will also receive a certificate of completion.
