1 Hour For Kids
Growing up, most of us had someone who made all the difference in our lives. Maybe it was a parent or grandparent. A teacher. A friend. An adult who understood you and cared about you. As you were growing up, that person was someone you could look up to.
Today in our community, too many kids are still waiting to meet someone who’ll make the difference in their lives.
That's why United Way Capital Area is launching a new initiative called 1 Hour For Kids. This initiative brings together eight nonprofits that specialize in providing mentors and tutors to vulnerable youth. These eight organizations work with kids in different ways, but all of their programs have shown the positive effect of connecting youth to supportive adults.
