Kids who start school ready to learn and stay on track, particularly in reading and math, experience personal success and strengthen our community.

United Way is lighting the way in creating lasting change.
Over the next 10 years, we will:
Increase by 50 percent the number of children ready to read;
Reduce by 50 percent the achievement gap in 3rd grade reading and 6th grade math for our most vulnerable children.

When kids are in the zone for reading and math...
they are less likely to turn substance abuse into a confidence builder; they are more likely to be aware of their physical condition; they graduate from high school on time and with the right skills, earn a better income and maintain a more stable employment history.
