Project 1,000

Did you know that children spend 20% of their time in the classroom and 80% outside of the classroom? Afterschool programs, tutoring programs, and mentoring programs have a direct impact on increasing academic achievement for children. That’s why United Way set a goal of recruiting and training 1,000 volunteers to serve as readers, mentors, and tutors for at-risk children and youth. Through our partnership with the UNC Charlotte Center for Adolescent Literacies, we offer comprehensive training in a short session that will equip you with the skills you need to help impact learning. And when you finish, we’ll send six new books for you to read with your student.
