WE FIGHT FOR EDUCATION
Prepare children to succeed
When children succeed, our whole community succeeds. United Way is committed to helping all children reach their potential through our partner programs and initiatives that support parents and provide safe and nurturing environments that help bolster academics, build leadership skills and promote social well-being.
HOW WE HELP
READING AND LITERACY
The United Way of Crookston has supported the United4Learning program by dedicating funding to serve students in grades K-6 in an after school reading program at Washington and Highland Elementary Schools. The goal of United4Learning is to build literacy skills with students by giving them the “gift of time” to develop those skills that will help them become successful readers and thinkers.
With an eye on future success, programs like the Confidence Learning Center, the PATCH homework assistance program and the learning and literacy programs at CALL, the United Way supports lifetime learning and lifelong education.
Scouting gives kids a chance to learn, grow and explore outside of a classroom setting and develop leadership, teamwork and volunteerism that stays with them for a lifetime. United Way knows that these are habits that make today's kids into the volunteers every community relies on, a never ending circle of giving back.
Fostering giving and growing in your community are lessons that children will carry with them into their adult lives and will guide them into becoming our future community leaders.
