Education

Monadnock United Way fights for education

Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life. It also benefits the whole community: high school graduates have higher earning potential, contribute more to their local economies, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise kids who also graduate on time.
 
Monadnock United Way makes sure children and youth can start school ready to succeed, become proficient readers at a young age, stay on track in middle school, earn their high school diploma, and are ready to pursue meaningful opportunities after high school.

Monadnock community members receive an education that enables them to achieve their fullest potential
