College Access

College Access

College Access programs work in our community to assist youth in preparing for and succeeding in college, both within and outside of the classroom. United Way of the Midlands works with three local nonprofits to ensure that college opportunities are equally available to everyone in our community. Whether it's academic assistance, testing preparation, or guidance through the college application process, these programs work with hundreds of local students to help them achieve a bright future.
