Leadership in Action

A Win-Win Program

Each year, corporate partners join with United Way in a cost-effective training program to improve our community and sharpen the talents of promising employees. Loaned Executives (LEs) benefit from a unique professional development program that cultivates executive talent, nurtures enthusiasm, strengthens sales skills and raises confidence.

Alumni have increased their effectiveness and business skills due to their experience as a United Way Loaned Executive.

LEs lend their expertise and energy to assist United Way in its Workplace Campaign efforts. As a result, costs are kept low by maximizing staff and volunteer efforts.
