  • Ask your top management to agree to take a group of young people to lunch to talk about their story/inspire them/give them helpful advice. OR – it could be to speak in front of a larger group – at school/college/club etc. United Madison is working with the Madison Metropolitan School District and while they are happy to have any community or business members speak to their students; they are especially interested in providing role models representing diverse race and ethnic backgrounds.


  • Host a team building experience with your staff or special group and United Madison can help you tie it into a GIVE BACK event.
