JULY ENGAGEMENT: SUPPORTING OUR SCHOOLS
United We Learn is an initiative to ensure equity and access to early learning for all children. United Way Suncoast invests in and implements programming within attendance zone of selected Title I Elementary schools comprised of Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) households. We concentrate on ensuring children enter kindergarten ready to learn, ensuring school-age children have the supports they need, and reducing barriers families encounter.
The more equipped that a child is with the proper school supplies, the more likely they are to succeed in that year's economic goals. Through the below opportunities, you can provide additional support to schools in our Suncoast region and directly support children to succeed.
- Teaching Tools Store: Saturday, July 15 (Tampa)
- This program through the Hillsborough Education Foundation provides free school supplies year-round to economically disadvantaged students attending Hillsborough County Public Schools designated as Title I. Volunteers assist with a variety of tasks at the store. Learn more
- Campbell Park Network for Early Learning: volunteers provide assist the Learn & Play Sessions that are designed to support parents/caregivers to play and interact with children in developmentally appropriate ways to encourage brain development and assist school readiness.
