Education is the key to unlocking a student’s potential and achieving financial success. Nevertheless, there are districts in our region where up to 40 percent of students won’t graduate from high school. United Way’s work touches on all phases of a student’s educational journey—from advocating for quality early education and keeping children in the same schools when their families move to helping more students graduate from high school.
Our On Track 4 Success program, operating at schools in Baltimore City, provides a blueprint for helping more at-risk students stay and succeed in school. Our Neighborhood Zones provide early childhood education and care, and our Young Men United program guides men of color from high school through early career.
Together, we are putting more students on the path to feeding their curiosity, earning their diploma, and achieving their dreams.
