On Giving Tuesday, for the sixth consecutive year, UScellular kicks off The Future of Good program highlighting young people who are helping create positive change in their local communities. Through The Future of Good, UScellular champions many causes, including the fight against hunger and homelessness, the protection of the environment and expansion of education and literacy.

At the end of the nomination phase, UScellular will announce three winners.
