Careers start here. Career Academies gives students hands-on experience and skills they will really use in their everyday lives. Now that’s a lesson plan.

By 2020, three-quarters of all jobs will require postsecondary education. It’s our job to make sure students get the education and experience they need to succeed.

Making the Grade

United Way is building a collective movement of educators, employers, government and community organizations dedicated to designing an educational experience that will prepare students for jobs to strengthen our region, economically and equitably.
