PROMOTING EDUCATIONAL EQUITY

Our education programs

United Way breaks down barriers to educational equity from every angle:

Our Family Centers, based in United Way Neighborhood Zones, provide free or low-cost onsite care and enriching early childhood education.

  • Our on Track 4 Success program in Baltimore City schools uses early warning indicators to help young students now so they don’t drop out of school later.
  • We’re bridging the digital divide by providing the technology that today’s learning environment demands.
  • And we make sure students stay in their same school if their families are forced to move when facing eviction or other housing crises.
  • Young Men United, the largest program of its kind in United Way history, will help 1,500 young men of color get into and graduate from college, ready to enter and strengthen our workforce.

We’re putting more students on the path to learning and feeding their curiosity, earning their diploma, and achieving their dreams.
