Education is the cornerstone for success in school, work and life that 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. To improve education, United Ways are helping children and youth to:

  • Start school ready to succeed
  • Read at grade level early on
  • Succeed in the middle grades
  • Complete secondary education
  • Pursue college or a post-secondary credential
