A Shout Out From One of Our Alums
United Way has been such a key part of my formative career years. First I served a year as a VISTA at a United Way in Indiana and migrated west to spend 3.5 years here with EKS and Marketing.
At United Way Bay Area, we are wholly committed to ending the cycle of poverty in the Bay Area. If you are looking for a meaningful career helping struggling families right here in our community, join us!
