The Changemakers: United Way Volunteers Make a Difference

Former Bears Player and AmeriCorps Volunteer Spark Fruitful Friendship

When Nikko Ross arrived at Ignite, a Young Leaders United fundraiser benefiting United Way’s AmeriCorps volunteers, he anticipated a casual night of fun and celebration. Little did he know, a chat with a special guest would spark a rewarding friendship that will extend far beyond the party.

The 4th Annual YLS IGNITE

Our 4th annual YLS IGNITE was one of our most successful yet! Hosted by Young Leaders Society, this mid-winter party is an opportunity for young philanthropists to help raise funds for different United Way programs each year, all while having a fun-filled evening with friends, new and old.
