Main Content

At United Way, we know that education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. Strong, productive communities are dependent upon a skilled workforce that can compete in a global economy. It is critical to reach children early—even before they start school.

Young people in Milwaukee at every stage of life are underserved and underperforming – particularly our low-income and students of color. Our young people have so much to give the world. We must ensure that all students, no matter where they live or where they come from, are given the tools and resources needed to become anything they want to be.

That’s why United Way partners so closely with the work of Milwaukee Succeeds, which works is for systems change and centers around four goals: kindergarten readiness, school success, college and career readiness, and social/emotional learning.
