ELC Events


We invite you to join United Way’s Emerging Leaders Council, a group of caring and committed young professionals on a mission to encourage philanthropy and volunteerism among their peers. ELC members are typically under 45 years old and engage in a wide variety of volunteer projects, professional development opportunities, networking conversations and social events. You can join more than 4,000 ELC members making a lasting difference for individuals, families and neighborhoods in need across our San Antonio community.

COVID-19 update: Many ELC events will be held virtually. In-person events will follow CDC guidelines for social distancing. Due to limited space, registration will be required for events. Wishing you and yours comfort and health during this time.
