Grade-level literacy is a predictor of future success in school. By fourth grade, children should be reading to learn. However, far too many students in our region are struggling to meet that milestone.
We’ve all heard the phrase find your bliss. But how do you do that? One solution Katherine Green has found is through volunteer work.
Kindergarten to College (K2C) Seed Accounts are opened and maintained by United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) and the City of Sacramento. The K2C Seed Account will be maintained by UWCCR for the benefit of individual students enrolled in participating Sacramento area schools. The K2C Seed Account will receive any incentive funds from the K2C program and accrue interest based on ScholarShare’s Passive Age Based Portfolio. To earn the matching incentives, families must open their own Family-owned ScholarShare 529.
United Way’s Healthy Meals Fueling Kids Success
After school meals program expanded to 18 locations in Fall 2019
1 in 5 students in the Sacramento region is food insecure. United Way’s Healthy Meals program increases children’s access to well-balanced, nutritious and free meals which fuels their ability to learn and grow.
What is a Kindergarten to College Seed Account?
K2C Seed Accounts are $25 savings accounts that will be opened for kindergarteners in qualifying schools. This seed money from United Way is held within a ScholarShare 529 account for the student. Furthermore, families can open another 100% tax-free ScholarShare 529 account at no cost to receive further matching awards from United Way. Information about ScholarShare 529 can be found at scholarshare529.com.
United Way’s early literacy program expands into two new schools
AARP Experience Corps to support 19 schools across the region
Only half of all third graders in our five county region are reading at grade level according to the 2018 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).
As part of United Way’s efforts to boost early literacy in our region, nearly 60 volunteers will tutor local students through the AARP Experience Corps program starting this fall. United Way has expanded the program and is partnering with two more schools for a total of 19 campuses to provide onsite reading support throughout the school year.
