Each fall, United Way’s Sponsored Employee Program gives community minded employers an excellent opportunity to make an investment in strengthening our community. By loaning one of your most valuable resources, your employees, to participate in our annual campaign you are also making an investment in your workplace.
Sponsored Employees (SEs) will benefit from a unique professional development experience, one that is designed to enhance their skills and teach them new ones as they increase their understanding of vital community issues. The result: employees bring added value when they return to your workplace.
Serving as an extension of United Way campaign staff, Sponsored Employees provide direction and support to annual campaign volunteers in workplaces throughout the city. They work full-time with United Way of Thunder Bay for a seventeen week period.
