GRADUATION FOR ALL

GRADUATION FOR ALL

In this knowledge-based economy, a high school diploma is no longer optional. In fact, for the next generation, a college degree or post-secondary training will be crucial.

This makes it even more concerning that in our region, nearly 15% of students on average – more than 7,000 kids — aren’t graduating from high school each year, let alone continuing on to additional education. 

A big reason for these bleak numbers is that kids aren’t connecting to programs that can offer them a glimpse of what lies ahead. Through the Impact Fund,United Way works to direct these students to SAT prep courses, college application workshops, organized college campus visits and workplace internships.

So we not only provide the window through which students can see their future, we help to ensure they stay on the path to get there.
