Emerging Leaders United


Cultivating young leaders today to advance the community tomorrow

Unique opportunities for young professionals to give back

United Way’s Emerging Leaders United (ELU) group is all about building connections and having fun – with a purpose. Forget going to another ho-hum networking night or boring conference. With ELU, you’ll have unique opportunities to give back to the local community at events while meeting other passionate young professionals.

We’re all about making positive and long-lasting change in central Maryland. Through professional development, educational opportunities, volunteerism and networking events, ELU’s end goal is to change the odds for families and communities by advancing education, housing, employment and health.
