In celebration of United Way Day of Action, 19 NFL players, United Way professionals and high-achieving youth from challenged high schools flocked to Capitol Hill on Thursday, June 21.

They shared about the importance of mentors in the life of a child and asked their Member of Congress to join United Way’s initiative to recruit one million readers, tutors and mentors for young people. These players have pledged to find 3,000 volunteers who will help cut the dropout rate in half by 2018. More
