SLU Sponsorship Program

Why partner with United Way? To advance the common good, in your community and for your company.

The Students LIVE UNITED program represents more than 750 students in six schools in Ottawa County, with the potential for growth into additional schools. Local high school students are giving back to the community as volunteers, and are learning valuable leadership skills along the way.

While engaging in volunteer projects in Ottawa County, these students are gaining skills that will help them become engaged members of their communities both now and in the future. They are also developing relationships with community leaders, local businesses and nonprofit organizations.  

Your sponsorship dollars are leveraged all year long, in presentations to the students, social media, materials and Career Exploration University opportunities.
