EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS - CRADLE TO CAREER INITIATIVE (C2C)

In 2013, the Tri-City Area United Way held a series of “Community Conversations”. We talked with 29 different groups of area citizens: high school at risk youth, high school leadership and student councils, civic groups, jail inmates, business leaders and employees. We talked with elected officials, emergency responders, social services and more. You raised 16 primary concerns with substance abuse, educational opportunities and parenting education standing out as the top three. These three concerns formed the basis for the beginning of our Educational Success - Cradle to Career Initiative.
