ORGANIZATION: United Way California Capital Region

United Way California Capital Region (UWCCR) is partnering with BookNook to provide dual in-person and virtual literacy tutoring to students in need of support. The Literacy Tutoring program is made up of passionate volunteers who are dedicated to helping children become great readers. Working collaboratively with community organizations such as housing developments and local schools, you can change the course of a child's life by sharing your wisdom and experience. Our goal is to improve children's literacy, strengthen our communities, and provide additional mentors into the homes of families in need. UWCCRs Literacy Tutoring program is proven to help children who aren’t reading at grade level gain an average of 1.5 reading levels by the end of the school year. We inspire and empower volunteers to help students and disrupt the cycle of poverty by making a lasting difference in the lives of Kindergarten-6th grade students. With approximately 2 days per week, 30 minutes per day, you can make an impact on a child’s life. By helping young students become better readers, we seek to ensure a legacy of strong futures, supported schools, and empowered volunteers.

Mission Statement

At United Way California Capital Region, we are a team dedicated to building stronger, healthier, more compassionate communities.


United Way California Capital Region has launched the Square One Project, a 20-year promise to significantly increase the number of local students who graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond. Through nine decades of work and research across Amador, El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer and Yolo counties, the local United Way believes ending poverty starts in school and is working to ensure kids meet important milestones for success in college or career. Sacramento area kids who graduate from college are 62% less likely to live in poverty than those who drop out of high school. Through the Square One Project, we are working to keep kids in school, keep them on track, set high expectations and ensure they have strong support systems.
