Thanks to You

Nate’s life changed in the blink of a shutter—thanks to an innovative United Way social enterprise that helps youth facing barriers find work in the creative industries.

A shot at success

Growing up, Nate Scott struggled to picture his future. He had a passion for photography, but like many young people, he was at risk of falling between the cracks. “I was scared for my future,” admits Nate. But with help from donors like you, Nate connected with an innovative social enterprise that helps talented youth who face barriers land work in the creative industries—just one way United Way works to put young people on the path to a promising future. Today, Nate is working for big-brand clients and hopes his experience can empower others. “I want to be a role model who shows other young black photographers success is achievable,” he says.
