We are excited to hear that one of our founding and fueling partners – the United Way of Greenville County – will receive a $3 million grant from the Social Innovation Fund. From the announcement:
United Way of Greenville County, Middle Grades Success Initiative
Through a $3 million grant, United Way of Greenville County will design a dropout prevention program for middle grade students. The program will use an Early Warning Response System, real-time data to identify students who begin to disengage from school. A team will then match students with appropriate interventions and resources.
The United Way was one of seven grantees, including the AARP Foundation and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. It is yet another sign of the fantastic work being done by UWGC. For more, read the grant announcement here.
