Children in families that struggle with poverty can be left behind or miss out on key opportunities to get an adequate education. That?s why Valley of the Sun United Way has made it one of our key objectives to Ensure Children and Youth Succeed.
We focus on four key transition points that influence a child?s success in school and life. Your support enables us to partner with parents, schools, businesses, community leaders and non-profits to ensure all children master these key transitions:
Ready for kindergarten
Reading at grade level by the end of third grade
Graduation from high school
Preparing for college or career
When children and youth receive the support they need to reach their full potential as adults, our entire community thrives.
