WHAT IS UNITED 4 YOUTH?
Putting our youth on an equitable path to fulfilling their potential requires us to work together toward a single, shared agenda. We need a collective vision, unified measures of achievement, strategies for how to attain success and a way to evaluate progress. That is the work of the United 4 Youth. United Way knows that together, we can ensure this is an equitable, thriving community
