Uniting a Force Against Poverty


Help us build a stronger Tucson!

Earlier this year Mayor Rothschild’s office, Arizona Serve of Prescott and the Southern Arizona Community School Alliance partnered together to improve high school graduation rates and connect students to post-graduation opportunities. As a Community School Initiative partner, United Way is supporting the partnership by providing Financial Coaching.

We are currently seeking volunteers interested in providing one-on-one assistance, mentoring, and guidance aimed at helping high school students access post-secondary education.

What does this mean for you?

  • We will provide free financial coaching.
  • Volunteers get the opportunity to learn a skill and then practice that skill with real people.
  • Be the Change! - change the role of education in the lives of students, families and communities, so that under-served youth may be empowered to overcome obstacles and become happy, healthy and productive adults.

What are we asking?

  • Becoming a Volunteer for United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona. Complete application here.
  • Attend a two-hour training
  • Since volunteers will be working with students in school, each volunteers will need to get a fingerprint card.
  • Volunteers will spend approximately 8 hours a month, split between two 4-hour shift working directly with 3 - 6 students (junior and seniors) through the school year at the school.
  • OPTIONAL - Attend monthly meet-ups to network, learn, and share.

Schools cannot succeed on their own; community school partnerships bring critical resources into schools in order to meet students’ academic, health, family or emotional needs and to help free teachers to teach.
