Middle School Memories

Middle school is a crazy time with major life changes. The social, emotional and physical all converge. United Way's Middle School Success initiative aims to make the transition to middle school and then high school and then graduation more than just about survival. Community support, quality mentors and coaches, involved parents, and early responses to risky behavior strengthen the place we call home for all of us.


A Winning Equation for Going Back to the Classroom This Year

United Way’s Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, Middle School Success and NC 2-1-1 Asheville Center are working together to make the back-to-school transition easier for area families. Hands On, the volunteer center of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, is already busy collecting back packs, school supplies and other items to help Buncombians send their children to school prepared. Last year’s drive helped to support 738 elementary and middle school students.
