United Way invites you to help youth succeed
All of us can look back on our early years and remember key people who had an influence on our lives – the basketball coach who inspired teamwork, the teacher who convinced students that they could do anything, the minister who conveyed the importance of giving back. This is what makes a strong community and what helps society move forward.
Now you have a chance to give back. There are many ways to help children - become a role model at an after-school program by helping children with their homework or share a skill or a hobby; mentor or tutor on a Saturday morning; join the Reading Buddies program; become a classroom assistant or provide much needed landscape improvement at a day care center. All of these volunteer activities will make a positive impact on the lives of the children and youth. It is volunteer opportunities like these, along with working for improvements and solutions throughout the education system that will allow United Way and the community to reach its goal ensuring children enter school with the skills they need to succeed in school and in life.
Through volunteering, you can help make sure our children and youth get connected to all kinds of supports so they can get a solid foundation in education – the first building block of a quality life.
We invite you to join us, volunteer. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED. For a complete list of volunteer opportunities, click here.
