United Way makes sure children and youth can start school ready to succeed, become proficient readers at a young age, stay on track in middle school, earn their high school diploma and pursue ADDITIONAL SCHOOL  OR TRAINING THAT LEADS TO A LASTING CAREER.


Youth achieve educational goals necessary to become positive, contributing members of the community.

Our Target Issues

1) Helping children develop the positive language and literacy skills in early education to enable them to have continued academic success.
2) Support area youth by reducing environmental barriers that limit their academic success.

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.
