No matter where you are, we're here to keep you connected.

Your next chapter means it's time to relax and forget the daily grind of work. But it doesn't have to mean you're not involved in your community. 

United After Work is a group for individuals who are retired, soon to retire, or looking to move on to the next chapter of their life. It is for people who recognize the important role volunteerism and philanthropy play in strengthening our community. United After Work allows you to engage with your peers and continue to make a difference with United Way of the Lakeshore.

The group meets the 4th Wednesday of every other month from 11:00 a.m - 12:30 p.m at United Way of the Lakeshore to learn more about United Way of the Lakeshore supported programs and agencies, and to find out how they can help support our community. 

United After Work:

1. Connects you with like-minded individuals
2. Gives you access to volunteer opportunities
3. Helps you stay active in your community

Find your niche.
