Project NEXT


United Way’s Project NEXT engages young professionals by creating meaningful and lasting opportunities for them to Give, Advocate, and Volunteer.

Project NEXT’s Value Proposition:

  • • Provide needed resources to take advantage of volunteer and advocacy opportunities;
  • • Promote opportunities to volunteer to individuals who don’t know how to get started;
  • • Eliminate the intimidation factor that comes with volunteering and advocating;
  • • Advocate for and fill the needs of the community;
  • • Spotlight volunteerism as a networking opportunity;
  • • Connect corporations and working professionals with the community; and
  • • Encourage young professionals to find their passion and be part of a catalyst for lasting change!

    Sponsorship Opportunities

    Engaging young professionals is a common goal shared by United Way and our corporate partners. Together, we understand that in order to attract and retain top talent throughout the Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey region, employees need to have opportunities to engage with and help improve the communities where they live, work and play. By aligning and partnering with Project NEXT, you are positioning your company as a community-minded leader, a corporate culture that young professionals care deeply about.
