Education

Success in life begins with a quality education And yet, millions of children lack the support they need to strengthen their literacy, stay on track in school, graduate high school, and find a career.

 

At The United Way we are fighting to shift the odds so tomorrow's leaders can build a better foundation today. With an approach to education that spans from cradle to career, we're ensuring every child gets a strong start in life, teenagers have the tools to learn and grow, and young adults thrive in the job market.

 

The average college graduate earns over $36,000 more per year than someone who drops out from high school and is half as likely to end up in poverty. This is why the United Way partners with organizations in order to build up and develop the education in our community. 

In Grant County this includes helping students find the right path for their post secondary training or education. As well as the up-skilling or re-skilling of displaced employees in our community.
