Student United Way
For students –
Are you a college student looking to get off campus and reach out the community? If yes, then Student United Way is the perfect student group for you. All you have to do to be a member is sign up and show up – there are no dues or fees!
Sign-Up to Volunteer!
Student United Way offers a unique opportunity for students on your campus to form connections to the community through the work of United Way and our member agencies. Student United Way is open to all university students in the bi-state, 16 county region covered by United Way of Greater St. Louis. Students come together as a regional group for meetings and to volunteer once per month, but chapter groups are also welcomed and encouraged to organize additional meetings and projects as a campus group.

Build relationships with United Way staff and member agencies
Gain first hand experience with organizing volunteer projects
Participate in a grant allocation process
Gain a greater understanding of the needs of the community
Grow leadership skills through multiple leadership opportunities available within the club

Students complete projects and service learning initiatives in the areas of basic needs, health, education, and strong communities.
