change the world
Young people like YOU have great ideas for community improvement. Together and UNITED we can inspire hope and create better opportunities for tomorrow.
WOWUnited is a year-long grant-based program which awards a GENERATION WOW girl (in grades 8 through 11) $1,000 to improve their community. Partnering with a local non-profit organization, you will put your innovative idea in action to benefit the greater good!
Grab a few friends to form the most dynamic team that is visionary, embraces community engagement, and will follow through on your project! Teams will have the opportunity to attend local United Way Upstream workshops to flesh out ideas, get advice on implementation, and create detailed action plans.
• At least one member of your team must attend GENERATION WOW on November 14th, 2018
• Projects must partner with a local Non-Profit Organization, a registered 501(c)(3)
• Projects must be youth-created and youth-led under the guidance of a committed sponsor (sponsors must be 18 or older)
