Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life. And it benefits the whole community: high school graduates earn more and contribute more to their local economies, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise kids who also graduate. United Way is about more than short-term charity for a few; we're about lasting solutions that build opportunity for all. We look at the big picture: what resources are lacking or need strenghening, and how we can address those gaps to keep kids on track to graduation.

Partner agencies like YouthPartners, Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson County, Jefferson County 4-H and Girl & Boy Scouts provide activities for youth that focus on both academic and personal achievement. Volunteers in Public Schools work with teachers and school staff to provide resources, services on special projects and help out in classrooms to enhance the learning experience for our students.

Your contribution to the United Way of Southeast Arkansas helps these agencies help students which in turn helps our community to thrive.
