Our youth are under stress, as evidenced by the number of children living in unstable home conditions, the rising trend in death by suicide among youth, and the lack of life – and decision-making skills that have led to problem behaviors and outcomes, causing harm to our youth and our community.
Our youth need – and want – social, educational, and community support to succeed. The United Way – with our community partners – will address the critical community need.
Serving the Flagstaff community since 1967, United Way of Northern Arizona is more committed than ever to collaborate with our valued partners to coordinate efforts and leverage resources to invest in the power and potential of successful and resilient youth.
This is our community and our future. We are focused and determined to achieve our shared purpose. This is the new United Way of Northern Arizona.
Take Action Today and Make a Difference
Community involvement is critical to our success, and the success of our youth. Our donors include corporations, workplace volunteers, individuals and foundations. To make a difference now, we encourage you to give, advocate and/or volunteer for collaborative projects that assist our youth in building key life skills.
Consider the difference the United Way of Northern Arizona has already made with your valuable help. As many as 87,000 mentoring hours have been provided to youth. More than 45,000 books have been given to our children. What’s more, 387 children have completed KinderCamp™, a school-readiness program that helps children become better prepared for kindergarten.
If you’d like to have a say in how we invest in the power and potential of youth, you can become one of our local volunteers. As a volunteer, you may review applications and conduct site visits to our partners, ultimately recommending how the community impact funds should be disbursed. The final funding decisions are made by our Board of Directors, who are community members, just like you. To give today, click the button below.
