Young Leaders Society
United Way Young Leaders Society (YLS) is a group of passionate young professionals who come together to educate, engage and inspire individuals across Greater Stark County. We harness our time and talents through mentorship, fundraising and volunteerism to activate education initiatives and build a better community.
Worried about having money for textbooks?
YLS awards textbook scholarships up to $1,000, renewable for up to four years. The scholarship was created to help offset the expense of college textbooks needed to further a student’s education after high school.
