WHO YOU HELP

INVEST IN A SCHOOL. INVEST IN A CHILD’S FUTURE

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…

  • Enhancing the school environment by making it a more positive place to learn and grow
  • Providing mentorship by engaging students with trusted adult role models
  • Fostering success in school by sharing life skills, developing interest in careers and promoting the importance of academic attendance and performance
  • Strengthening the culture of volunteerism in your organization and attracting quality candidates who understand the value of giving back.

Thank you to our Adopt-A-School companies
