The mission of the Young Leaders is to positively impact the lives of children in Lake County through improved health and education. They work toward this, in part, via the support of 501(c)(3) and nonprofit organizations in Lake County with grants that promote a similar mission geared toward youth.

Organizations and agencies selected to receive grants will be announced when funds are distributed later this summer.

Young Leaders of United Way of Lake County was established in 2014 by a core group of United Way volunteers to positively impact the lives of youth through the philanthropic efforts of giving, advocating and volunteering. This is third funding cycle. 

The group raises donations throughout the year to support their grant funding program through membership fees, speaker engagements, and their annual Golf Outing fundraiser in September.  Funds raised are also used to help advance the goal of engaging, empowering, mentoring and supporting the youth of our community in the achievement of their goals.

The group welcomes new members interested in volunteering their time to impact lives in the community. To learn more about Young Leaders of Lake County, call 440.639.1236 or email  Information can also be found on Facebook at
