LIVE UNITED Ambassador

LIVE UNITED Ambassadors assist with the annual United Way fundraising campaign by presenting at employer groups throughout the community about workplace giving.  The program provides volunteers with valuable, job-transferrable skills, helps them to develop job history to build or fill resume gaps, and develops their civic leadership by exposing them to our community's most pressing needs and the non-profit agencies and programs addressing those needs.
