Young Leaders Community Commitment in Greater Cleveland

Addressing the low-income achievement gap

United Way’s Young Leaders are working to break the cycle of poverty in our community by focusing their volunteer work on minimizing the low-income achievement gap in Greater Cleveland.

The link between a family’s income and a child’s ability to thrive in school goes hand in hand with that child’s ability to graduate and pursue higher education.

And the single biggest barrier for advancing in education is a child’s access to books at home and in school. The Young Leaders raise funds to open reading rooms in low performing schools in Cleveland, giving students an opportunity to read in a fun environment in school and take books home to read for pleasure and learning.
