United Way’s Adopt-a-School program allows corporate partners to “adopt” a local school to develop a customized program that meets the needs of the students and aligns with the partners’ skills and interests. From classroom projects, to mentoring, to organizing field trips, your company can have an intricate role in the lives of local students.
In the past 2 years, the Adopt-A-School program has positively impacted 2,000 students. There are many more schools in need and students to be reached.
When your company joins United Way’s Adopt-a-School program, you can engage children in valuable learning and exploration experiences while creating a meaningful volunteer experience for your employees. Both programs help meet the needs of underserved schools and students. Invest in a local school by…
