Transforming Children's Futures

The United Way is proud to lead a coalition of community agencies centered on the core educational focus areas of school readiness; regular attendance; summer learning; family engagement and healthy growth and development. Transforming Children's Futures is taking our lead from the Campaign for Grade Level Reading--a national initiative which strives to improve third grade reading proficiency.

Children are learning to read from birth through third grade, but from fourth grade on, children are reading to learn.

When a child misses this key milestone, the trajectory for future success is much less likely.
