WHAT OUR ATTENDEES SAY
“The Fellowship Program pushed me to learn more about the entire United Way organization, the amazing people working within the network and the incredible impact we have on our communities every single day. I grew both professionally and personally and credit the program for giving me stronger direction as it pertains to my career. The Fellowship was, by far, the best professional experience I’ve ever had and I will always be grateful for the UWW staff and my fellow fellows for the experience.”
