Three goals drive our work of improving the lives of young people across Southern Arizona.
Our mission of preparing every child for success in school and life, ensuring the economic vitality of our community, depends on ensuring that all young people have access to education and career pathways that best suit their needs. These pathways are unique, whether it includes learning a trade, attending community college or university, or access to additional help and resources to become reconnected to these paths.
Our community partners are creating innovative solutions to address our community’s needs in the areas of high school graduation, post-secondary education, and re-engagement of Opportunity Youth.

Leaders in Literacy
Literacy in both reading and numeracy is essential for success in school and skill building. We address these foundational skills by working directly with educators and school districts, providing them with opportunities to co-develop strategies and solutions to help all students achieve, equitably. By making small changes within classrooms, we can make a large impact.
We facilitate conversations among our seven district partners, allowing them to learn from each other, implement similar solutions, and replicate successes across Pima County.

Early Childhood Education
Early Childhood Education is essential to create a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our anchor organization United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is addressing this need through a variety of programs including increasing access to high-quality early education and care, family and caregiver support, and professional development opportunities for early childhood educators.
