United Way of Greater Baytown Area and Chambers County works to increase access and engagement in education for under-served, at-risk children, teens, and young adults.

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 of Greater Baytown Area and Chambers County 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.

Funding Objective: Children in our community will be Kindergarten-Ready.  Teens and young adults will have enhanced employability and lifelong earning potential to improve economic security.
