Emerging Leaders


The mission of the Emerging Leaders of the Lower Eastern Shore is to promote and encourage the spirit of philanthropy and volunteerism among young professionals in Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester Counties. Our efforts are focused on Lower Eastern Shore’s children and youth. It is our belief that the best way to invest in the future of Wicomico, Worcester, Somerset and Dorchester Counties is to invest in our youngest residents.

We’re all about making positive and long-lasting change on the Eastern Shore. Through professional development, educational opportunities, volunteerism and networking events, this Emerging Leaders group has the end goal to change the odds for families and communities by advancing education, housing, employment and health.
