Moving America’s Children Into the Spotlight

As Election Day 2012 approaches, United Way is partnering with several national children’s organizations, including Voices for America’s Future (Voices), the Children’s Leadership Council, SparkAction and the National Collaboration for Youth, to ensure that children, youth and families are not forgotten during Town Halls, debates and especially in the voting booth.

Reflections on United Way’s Education Advocacy Efforts

Despite threats to critical education programs and heightened political battles in Congress, 2011 was a great year for United Way Worldwide’s education policy work. United Way worked tirelessly to raise awareness about education policy issues and advocate for key pieces of legislation that provide young people with the supports necessary for success in college, work and life.

Celebrating American Education Week

American Education Week (Nov. 13-19), is an opportunity for us to honor those individuals that work everyday to make a difference for children in local communities across the nation.
