Community Priority

Education & Academic Success

We are supporting education through building effective partnerships with schools, families, and communities.

The right support, training, and education can change the direction of a young person’s life. Mile High United Way’s community programs support school-age kids and young adults so they can graduate from high school ready for post-secondary education or entry into the workforce. Through tutoring, mentoring, supporting social-emotional learning, and bridging the digital divide, we can help create brighter futures for young people in our community.
