Lubbock Area United Way - Education Matters Initiative


Lubbock Area United Way works with the community, including other non-profit partners, school districts, businesses, and government entities, to proactively address the root causes of issues and empower everyone to attain independence and success.  When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. 

In the news recently, the Lubbock AJ published a group of editrorials about education. Below are the links:

• School accountability system should focus on progress, not punishment

• Students need more than one pathway leading to diploma, higher ed, or a job

The Education Matters Initiative is a group of targeted strategies and action plans that address community needs and issues. 

There are three components to this initiative:  Success By 6, Success In School, and Success For Life.
