Nearly 6,000 American students drop out of school every day. But students who participate in mentor relationships miss 50% fewer school days, are less likely to use drugs, and are more likely to complete their education. With only 20 percent of a student's time spent in school, out-of-school time activities serve as an intergral part of a child's success.
United Way in Waukesha County understands that reading, tutoring, and mentoring are not only needed for youth, but for adult learners as well. Please consider helping an adult or individual with special needs to meet their goals of being educated and self-sufficient!
