Studies show that out-of-school time directly affects youth behavior and academic success. School progress and achievement often reflect how their time outside of school is structured. United Way helps children and youth achieve their potential with the understanding that education is the foundation for a good life, setting the individual on a path of personal fulfillment, economic security and societal contribution.
