Every year, more than one million U.S. students drop out of high school. That means fewer young Americans are earning diplomas than their parents—a statistic shared by no other industrialized country in the world. That’s why United Way is working to make sure that children and young adults are beginning school with the skills they need to succeed, staying on track with their reading by fourth grade, transitioning successfully to and from middle school, graduating high school on time, and are either working or in advanced education by the time they’re 21 years old.
United Way is a worldwide movement of nearly 1,800 community-based United Way organizations in 41 countries and territories. It advances the common good by focusing on education, income and health—the building blocks for a good quality life. The United Way movement mobilizes millions to action: to give, advocate, volunteer, and improve conditions in their local community.
