The United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties’ work in Education began more than 16 years ago with the inception of Success By 6 and the original mission to improve the quality, affordability and accessibility of early care and education programs for children so they enter school ready to learn and achieve. That work has evolved to reach deep into the community with effective partnerships and targeted programs to address situational and long-term family and early childhood needs; public awareness campaigns; school attendance; summer learning; school readiness; Pre-K - 3rd grade family engagement; healthy growth and development; literacy and enhanced Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) opportunities for students.
The United Way is fighting to provide all area children and teens with opportunities for quality learning and skill development.
