Volunteer to change kids' lives in North Texas

Join thousands of North Texans as a United Way education volunteer to help students as a reader, tutor or mentor.

When you do, you also join a nationwide United Way effort to identify 1 million education volunteers — and you support the local United 2020 community goal to prepare 60 percent of high school graduates to succeed in education after high school.

Volunteering to help North Texas kids learn is an incredible way to change a child’s life — and yours. Learn how United Way volunteer Shakeya had her day lifted after mentoring Abraham.

Sometimes the most important time you take for yourself is the time you make for someone else.
