On June 21, 2011 United Way launched an ambitious goal to recruit one million volunteer Readers, Tutors and Mentors nationwide, because we believe that every kid deserves to graduate on time with a great education. United Way is committed to recruiting mentors in communities nationwide. Sign up beloew to be connected with your local United Way and answer the call to help children in yours.
United Way launched a 10-year initiative to cut by half the number of young people who drop out of high school by 2018. The key to increasing the success of our students is to involve our community. This is why United Way has set a complimentary goal of recruiting 1,000,000 Readers, Tutors and Mentors. Locally, the Heart of Florida United Way's goal is to recruit at least 3,000 new Readers, Tutors, and Mentors. It is a goal that we are anxious to not only meet, but to surpass.
