Did you know that the United Way of Delaware works closely with more than 100 partner agencies to help improve and change the lives of many individuals in our community?
Getting ready for the new year
The first partner agency highlighted during the UD countdown is Delaware Kids Connection, a mentoring program that matches middle school students with trained community mentors. It is designed to improve academic achievement, link positive school experiences to the student’s family, provide job and career planning concepts, and promote parent and community involvement. Delaware Kids Connection seeks volunteer mentors to commit to helping a child improve his or her life and encourage them to reach for their goals.
