Education Impacts

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. United Way GBACC focuses on long-term solutions and addressing opportunity gaps throughout the cradle-to-career pipeline in order to keep kids on track to graduate high school, be prepared for college and develop a career. The greatest single ticket out of poverty for a child is a high school diploma and, when possible, higher education.
