Thousands of our El Paso children are in safe and productive after school programs throughout the community.
At United Way, we believe that every child deserves to live in a world full of possibilities. That’s why United Way after-school programs are so important.
- In our community, one in three children is left alone after school
- One in four students in El Paso County will not graduate from high school
- Between the hours of 3:00 and 6:00 p.m., kids are most at risk of getting into trouble or becoming victims of a crime
To help children and youth reach their full potential, United Way of El Paso County is providing positive out-of-school programs led by caring adults. When kids have a safe place to go after school, a support network they can count on, and activities that engage them, they have a better chance of becoming all they can be.
“United Way of El Paso County is focused on children and youth in our community, says Deborah Zuloaga, CEO of United Way of El Paso County.”We know that when we provide our children with quality programs after school, we improve their chances for success both in school and life. We also know that children in quality programs are more likely to do better in school, have less absences, and get along better with their peers.”
Positive after-school programs set kids on the path to a brighter future. United Way is here to make sure kids in our community see the possibilities all around them.
