Club Connect: Overview & How to Support

Club Connect Adopt-A-School Project

A Project of United Way of York County in conjunction with United Way Worldwide,

NAESP (National Association of Elementary School Principals) and Scholastic Books

 

In celebration of United Way of York County’s 30th Anniversary, we launched an ambitious plan to raise an additional raise $30,000 this year. 

 

These funds will be used to purchase and place a Club Connect mini library in up to three York County elementary schools and/or community program sites.  Through Club Connect, access to high quality, age-appropriate reading materials is increased, as is parent engagement in the language and literacy development of their children.

 

The research is consistent and clear: If by 3rd grade children are not reading at grade level, they will fall behind in school and become discouraged, which leads to middle school absenteeism and increased high school dropout rates. Children not reading at grade level at the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to not graduate from high school.

 

Names of donors giving $250 or more will be included on a plaque at the Club Connect sites. Donors may opt to remain anonymous.
