Our Mission We’re on a mission to change lives forever in North Texas. Since 1924, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas has invested in the most effective local programs that work to create opportunities and change lives forever. Kids learning outside the classroom for STEM in the Schoolyard with Texas Instruments, EY & Accenture We unite donors and volunteers with organizations who are focused on producing real results in the areas of: • education, • financial stability, and • health. 2 Community Goals 3 Unite for Education Education is the first step across the opportunity divide. Ready, set, learn! Giving kids the skills to succeed in school sets them up for lifelong success and lays a foundation that will span generations to come. Education is change that lasts! 4 Unite for Income Poverty isn’t permanent. Too many children and their hardworking parents know too well what it’s like to live without. Without food, a home, a job that offers advancement opportunities, without the knowledge that college is an option. Without opportunity. 5 Unite for Health Better Health Leads to Better Lives. Good health influences everything from how well a child is able to learn in the classroom to how much an adult is able to earn in the workplace. Its effects truly last a lifetime. 6 Our Approach 7 Role of the Coordinator 1. Unite as a Leader: Educate employees 2.
