About Lead United

We cultivate community-minded individuals to Lead United in their workplaces, in our community and through their philanthropy. Our local network is invested, compassionate and focused on understanding Dane County’s critical issues and achieving professional growth.

Agenda for Change: A Road Map for Family Stability and Mobility from Poverty

We unite the community to create measurable results and change lives by identifying the root causes of issues and discovering solutions – with the help of our hundreds of nonprofit and community partners. At this event, you'll meet just a few of our partners that help us achieve our community level goals.

Community Goals: Education

  • Children are cared for and have fun as they become prepared for school
  • Students succeed academically and graduate from high school prepared for higher education, career and community

The Literacy Network: Family Literacy

The adults we support improve their skills in English language communications, reading comprehension, and use of information technology. As a result, they advance their careers, help their kids succeed in school, become U.S. citizens, understand health information, or obtain their high school diploma or other degrees.

AmeriCorps and United Way of Dane County: Schools of Hope

Its mission is to provide literacy tutoring support to improve the academic achievement of kindergarten through fifth grade students. Members serve as tutor coordinators in designated high-need schools, directing their considerable energy and talent toward advancing literacy achievement by matching skilled volunteers with students, providing direct tutoring service themselves, and helping low-income families build home library collections.

Urban Triage: Supporting Healthy Black Families

SHBF provides advocacy and wrap-around support. Our transformative education enrolls Black people into leadership; decreases stress and internal dialogues that are incongruent with growth--directly addressing the root of health disparities and inequalities in our community. SHBF is a 90-day leadership workgroup. That increases the capacity of Black people to support and love themselves, their families, and each other.
