You Can Help

You Can Help children reach their full potential through a quality education.  Your help provides at-risk youth with the tools and support they need to graduate and make healthy choices.   
 

Making a difference for families and individuals

  • Child Care and Early Education Support - provides the opportunity for thousands of children to attend safe, high-quality child care, allowing their parents to work. Without these child care subsidies, parents would have to choose between keeping their jobs or possibly choosing an unsafe child care arrangement.
     
  • ReadingPals teams volunteers/mentors with young children struggling with reading skills. Focused on improving third grade reading scores, these volunteers each commit 25 hours to working with children in pre-kindergarten and first grade.
     
  • Broward Youth Coalition engages high school students in leadership activities.  The diverse youth come together to collaborate and implement projects improving their schools and communities. The students learn and teach others about responsible decision-making.
