United Way works to end America’s education crisis
Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. But with more than 1.2 million children dropping out each year, America faces an education crisis. The cost? More than $312 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes.1 These trends are reversible, but only when communities and public, private and nonprofit sectors work together.
United Way of Bemidji Area is helping children, youth and young adults achieve their full potential by: investing in local partner agency programs and services; developing community initiatives that respond to gaps and immediate needs; and strategically engaging with partners in implementing aligned strategies that help us build a stronger community.
