EDUCATION

United Way works to support education in our community


Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life. And it benefits our whole community. United Way looks at the big picture: what resources are lacking or need strengthening, and how we can address those gaps to keep kids on track to graduation. 

Our Goal

Lead community-wide efforts to improve the academic success of children and youth.

Our Strategy

To improve education, United Way is helping children and youth in four ways:

  1. Start school ready to succeed

  2. Read at grade level early on

  3. Succeed in the middle grades

  4. Complete high school

How You Can Help

To reach our goal, we need your help. The strategies proven to work are those that connect communities to their schools: parent involvement; literacy volunteers in the classroom; mentors for disadvantaged students; business leaders engaged in early childhood advocacy.

 

Volunteer to help.
