Forty-seven years after its establishment in 1972, Mobile United is still actively seeking to make Mobile a better place to live. As times change, so does our relevancy to the community and our mission. In 2019 and the years to come, Mobile United will “unite the community through deliberative dialogue to train, convene, and engage leaders for positive action.”
To accomplish our mission of uniting our community through deliberate dialogue, we’re introducing 5:30 Forums. The Forums are an opportunity for our members and the public to engage in conversation over dinner about topics we all care about (but might not always agree on). Each of the five Forums in 2019 will feature a moderated speaker panel that will interact with the audience, so it’s more of a conversation.
We wouldn’t be Mobile United without our staple leadership programs: Leadership Mobile, Connect Mobile, and Youth Leadership Mobile. The leadership programs allow individuals to develop their leadership skills and engage in positive action for the betterment of our city.
Our active Task Forces are another avenue to engage leaders and are made up of servant-hearted board members, leadership program alumni, and community members. The Task Forces meet monthly to discuss and act on the issues that matter to all of us.
Membership is open to anyone interested in joining a team of engaged and interested citizens working together for the betterment of our community. Join today!
Please explore this site to learn more about how we bring our mission to life.
The mission of Leadership Mobile is to seek, train and empower leaders who are committed to supporting and leading community growth and progress through networking and collaborative problem solving.
Connect Mobile’s mission is to identify and cultivate young leaders, ages 21-35, in the Mobile Bay area. The program is an extension of Mobile United’s mission to identify and train a network of leaders who work towards leveraging collective impact for the greater good.
Youth Leadership Mobile is a program that identifies and empowers rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors from diverse backgrounds and schools in Mobile County and who have the potential and interest in becoming trustees of their community. During the nine-month program the participants will expand their leadership skills, will be introduced to issues and opportunities in the community and will learn how their leadership abilities can best fit those needs through the lens of servant leadership.
