Helping Children and Youth Achieve Their Potential
United Way of York County believes that access to high quality early childhood education will ensure that our children are ready to achieve in school. Through the Community Fund, high quality preschool child care programs are provided with the necessary funds to prepare children to succeed in later grades. Helping youth stay in school by funding youth development, mentoring, school-age child care and tutoring programs keeps them on the right educational path for high school. Finally, United Way is committed to funding proven programs that are designed to help students graduate from high school and transition successfully to the work world or advanced education and training.
