What is Youth United Way?

YUW volunteer projects serve local community partners or city committees. Lead by an executive team, YUW works with a sponsor to plan volunteer activities throughout the year. Each year, the group performs a combined total of over 4,000 hours of volunteer service, and are always seeking new opportunities to serve.
