Volunteer Leaders

United Way of Southeast Louisiana is a volunteer-driven organization. We are governed by a local volunteer board of directors that represents every sector and region that United Way serves. From the Campaign Cabinet to the Leadership Councils, volunteers are critical to the efforts to raise the dollars needed to support the issues that matter most to our community.
