Our friends at Child Abuse Prevention Services asked that we share some information about "Stalking the Bogeyman" SEPTEMBER 18 - OCTOBER 13, 2013. The play is based on the true story of David Holthouse, a journalist who stalked the man who abused him as a boy. The question he has to decide is: what is the cost of revenge?
We want to make sure that every middle school kid who attends an out of school time program has a quality experience. That's where Positive Youth Development come in. Participants in this course learned and committed to training and carrying out the five principles of Positive Youth Development:
In a conversation with community volunteers about United Way’s focus on education, we heard the following comments: “Kids aren’t my best group to work with”, “There is a reason I’m not a teacher” and “School years weren’t my happiest – what else can I do”. Realizing at the same time that school volunteer programs don’t always align with people’s availability, we figured that we could suggest ways to support education of children outside of the classroom.
Today, millions of Americans will remember and honor the victims and heroes of September 11, 2001 by pledging to do a good deed. Join them by telling the world how you pledge to LIVE UNITED and observe 9/11 as a day of giving back.
Today is a big day full of great folks and big learning here at United Way. During our annual giving campaign, companies designate an employee who will run their campaign.
At today's training sessions we will meet many of them - some first-timers and others who are "well seasoned". We will give them the tools they'll need to succeed and answer their questions.
Thank you to Mike Mercer for personally stopping by to share Bank of America's 2013 corporate gift with us yesterday.
During a period of 24 months, United Way visited 42 different groups of Buncombe County residents and asked 326 people about their dreams for a good community. We asked them what kind of community they want, what it means to have a good life, what gets in the way of that here, and what can be done to fix those obstacles.
We learned a lot and we are inspired by their thoughtful conversations with each other. People were sincere and forthright in their responses. When we compiled all the responses, we realized 4 strong themes from every conversation.
