Student Resources

Access Education. Overcome Poverty.

We believe that everyone deserves to have easy access to all the resources they need to thrive. Whether your little one is starting school or you’re tackling high school or community college, United Way’s community-wide network of education programs aims to challenge the barriers created by systemic racism and set you up for educational success.

Racial Equity Coalition

We believe communities of color are best equipped to support youth of color in all aspects of life, including accessing their education. Wouldn’t it be great to hear your own stories in your educational curriculum to keep you engaged through high school and beyond? Each of our 14 Racial Equity Coalition (REC) partners do just that.

By creating communities of belonging, our REC partners provide after-school programs to address the uniqueness and challenges of Black, Indigenous, and students from other communities of color to build the tools they need to stay engaged in school. Find a program that works best for you.
