Education

United Way of Central Indiana fights for the education, financial stability, health and basic needs of everyone in our community.

For nearly 100 years, we have strived to help all Central Indiana residents achieve and maintain self-sufficiency by focusing on four key areas of community impact – Education, Financial Stability, Health and Basic Needs – in the six-county region of Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Marion and Morgan counties.

Looking Ahead

United Way is working to increase the academic success of Central Indiana's youth by enhancing child care quality, strengthening early reading skills and supporting youth development opportunities. Our community impact goals for education include:
  • 80% of Central Indiana child care centers are high-quality by 2021;
  • 90% of Central Indiana 3rd graders are at grade-level reading ability by 2021;
  • 90% on-time high school graduation rate for all Central Indiana students by 2021.
To accomplish these goals, we are continuing to focus on early childhood education and quality care by working with more local child care centers to improve their Paths to QUALITY rating.

We are also expanding our ReadUP tutoring program, seeking more volunteers to help at-risk 3rd graders because research suggests that success at the 3rd grade level is a leading indicator of long-term academic achievement and eventual high school graduation.
