All that kids can be



All that kids can beChildren and youth are the future of our communities.

To be successful, independent adults, children and youth need a good start in life, access to early literacy and development programs, positive school experiences during the middle years and to graduate from high school. They also benefit from recreational activities, mentor relationships with adult role models and opportunities to discover and develop their talents and interests.

United Ways Centraides partner with all levels of government, the business community, human service organizations and community members to identify, address and alleviate the barriers children and youth face from “cradle to career.”

  • After school initiatives
  • Camp, recreation, arts and culture and sports
