Working at Metro United Way

Life is short - do work that matters (and join us at Metro United Way)!

At Metro United Way, we are dedicated to developing an inclusive workplace with deep roots in the community that we serve. We are thrilled that you are interested in being part of this exciting and meaningful work!

We are part of a global network of nearly 1,800 locally governed United Ways that are creating lasting, positive change in communities. For nearly 100 years, we have focused on solving community problems.  That will never change. What has changed is how we help solve those problems.  We focus on outcomes – not just activities – in order to organize investment programs, and to look hard at the issues that can lead to significant, lasting change.

At Metro United Way, we focus on education, financial stability and health because we believe they are the building blocks for a good quality of life. We also believe that an education has a powerful affect on the other two - leading to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and being healthy. That’s why one of our community aspirations is that all children enter kindergarten ready to learn. Studies show that children who enter kindergarten prepared are more likely to graduate from high school on time, go to college and find a stable job upon graduation. By focusing our efforts on making sure all children come to school prepared to succeed, and then giving those same children the support they need to graduate from high school on time, we are creating lasting change in our community. 

We do it because we believe in it.

Metro United Way is proud to employ individuals from a variety of backgrounds who are all committed to building a stronger community and improving lives. Our team is made up of a dedicated team of skilled professionals. And our work is making a long lasting impact in the community. We love the work that we do! Metro United Way is always searching for talented people that share our vision of a community whose people achieve their fullest potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives. Metro United Way is committed to fostering an inclusive work environment for all staff; we are an equal opportunity employer committed to principles of the broadest form of diversity.
