Education is the cornerstone for success in school, work, and life. At United Way, we see Education as a community responsibility. It takes all of us – parents, teachers, and caring adults – to help a child succeed in school and in life.


We know that kids who have access to quality education from cradle to career will give back to their community ten-fold: high school graduates have higher earning potential, contribute more to their local economies, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise kids who also graduate on time.


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; and business leaders engaged in early childhood advocacy.
