YOUTH SUCCESS

United Way works to ensure our kids are equipped for success from birth through career.

Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. It opens kids up to a world of possibilities and builds confidence, skills and a foundation for the future. It is crucial to reach kids before they start school and support them throughout their education. Once a child falls behind, it can be difficult to catch up.
