(Victor Valley)–At Inland Empire United Way, we are committed to investing in the future self-sufficiency of disadvantaged youth in our community…and that’s why we’ve launched Mentor Connection. With 1 in 5 children living in poverty, over 8,000 students dropping out of school annually and 50% more children in single parent households than the national average, Inland Empire kids clearly need our help.
Our goal is to help disadvantaged youth to succeed in school and be prepared for future self-sufficiency. Research shows that just one caring, committed adult volunteer can make that difference for an at-risk child. There are opportunities to fit any schedule and anyone can make a difference – young adults, retirees and professionals.
We need 1,000 volunteer readers, tutors and mentors for kids in the Inland Empire.
