With your support, United Way works to improve after-school programs that keep kids out of trouble and on the right track.
Between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. are peak hours for risky behavior. Students without positive adult relationships may be experiencing struggles keeping up in class, managing their time, or simply making it to school.
With the support of donors, United Way works to improve access and quality of after school programs. We are able to help after-school centers offer mentoring and counseling to support kids who may be failing classes, not getting along with their parents or peers, or are going through other hard times. This support leads to improved readiness for post-secondary education and employment.
Ensure 115,000 students have access to quality after-school programs.
