istock 000015866137smallDid you know that children spend 20% of their time in the classroom and 80% outside of the classroom? During that 80%, what are the children in our community doing? United Way realizes that afterschool programs, tutoring programs, and mentoring programs have a direct impact on increasing academic achievement for children. That's why, as part of its Collective Impact pilot initiative in children and youth/education, United Way has set a goal of recruiting and training 1,000 volunteers to serve as tutors, readers, and mentors in select United Way funded agencies.

Volunteers can commit as little as an hour a week to reading, tutoring, or mentoring a child – or they can get involved at an even higher level.  Volunteers are needed now for the agencies involved in the pilot project. In partnership with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, volunteer training sessions will prepare all 1,000 volunteers.
