The United Way knows that a large predictor of students’ success in academia is their ability to read and interpret information. Research shows that one of the most important factors in whether or not children learn to read is having consistent opportunities to practice with a caring adult. That’s why they are looking for one-on-one tutoring opportunities in schools throughout the region. United Way may be able to support these opportunities by providing volunteers and other resources.
The United Way recognizes that the budget cuts to our education infrastructure have been devastating to our schools so now, more than ever, they are stepping up to improve the lives and education of our communities—but they can’t do it without you!
If you would like to schedule a meeting to discuss what kinds of volunteer needs your school may have and how United Way can help fill them, please contact Syreeta.
