Kids on Track
In Larimer County, 33% of students are not graduating from high school on time. That’s approximately 1000 students every year. Kids on Track is an initiative created and led by United Way of Larimer County to address this issue.
Kids on Track is committed to empowering youth to achieve early grade literacy, to stay in school, and to graduate on time.
The Kids on Track initiative is based on national research showing that we can achieve the above goal by:
- Helping students maintain academic knowledge over summer breaks (preventing the “summer slide”)
- Increasing youth engagement in school and extra-curricular activities
- Engaging youth in social and academic activities that give them access to mentors
- Helping youth transition from elementary to middle school
Your support, no matter how big or small, makes a difference today and for generations to come.
