When & Where
United Way realizes that afterschool programs, tutoring programs, and mentoring programs have a direct impact on increasing academic achievement for children. That's why, as part of its Collective Impact pilot initiative in children and youth/education, United Way has set a goal of recruiting and training 1,000 volunteers to serve as tutors, readers, and mentors in select United Way funded agencies.
Volunteers can commit as little as an hour a week to reading, tutoring, or mentoring a child. Take the pledge today! Call Sarah Degnan at 704-371-6255 for a complete list of volunteer opportunities.
