Rising Leaders is an eight-month long program, sponsored by Friday Staffing and Carolina Village, designed to develop the next generation of community leaders and board members for Henderson County nonprofit organizations. United Way of Henderson County has created the Rising Leaders program to educate individuals and give them the tools and connections to become key volunteers with our community partners and other nonprofits in Henderson County.


The 2017-18 Rising Leaders graduated in March and are ready to serve local organizations. Learn more here!

Thanks to the generous sponsorship by Friday Staffing and Carolina Village, the Rising Leaders Program is free of charge for all participants. Space is limited each year. Graduates are already making a strong impact in our community, as many of them have been recruited to serve on committees, boards of directors and in other key roles of local non-profit organizations.
