United Way Fellows Program
Fellows complete a 6 month-long program which includes an overview of the region's most urgent needs. Fellows also have the opportunity to tour and learn more about several programs making a difference in the areas of Education, Financial Stability, Health, and Basic Needs. Throughout the program, participants have the opportunity to develop their leadership and professional skills by applying their talents to support United Way's mission of connecting the community for the common good. Whether you love building new relationships, planning workplace campaign efforts, meeting new people, or public speaking, we can customize an approach that fits your unique interests.
Fellows meet with a monthly luncheon and agency tour, with progress being made toward their goals on their own schedules with help from UWCK. A time commitment of 4-6 hours can be expected, while some Fellows may choose to get more involved. Fellows work with UWCK staff, volunteers, and employee campaign managers to engage new businesses in United Way's work, support existing workplace campaigns, and represent the organization in the community during their term.
There is no cost to participate in the program, which is now open for registration to all residents of Hardin, Breckinridge, Grayson, LaRue, and Meade Counties. However, please note that there will be two seperate programs this year. One Fellows program hosted in Hardin County, and one hosted in Grayson County. Please apply for the one Fellows program which is most convienient for you and your work schedule.
We hope you will consider this opportunity to serve or share with someone who may be interested in participating!
