United Way Learning Community

United Way Community Schools Learning Community

About the Network

The United Way Community Schools Learning Community is a peer networking opportunity for United Way’s involved in Community Schools initiatives; such as, a key leader in the community leadership group, an intermediary organization managing the Community Schools work, or a lead agency or funder that provides the necessary resources. It is convened by United Way Worldwide, local United Way’s, and the Coalition for Community Schools.

Key Roles of United Ways in Community Schools

  • Key player in community leadership group: Provide oversight of the Community Schools work; provide resources; and contribute to policy development and decisions.
  • Intermediary organization: Manage the Community Schools initiative, create the strategic plan, and ensure that there is communication between the School Site Leadership Team and the Community Leadership Team.
  • Lead agency or contract with others to be leads.
  • Funder: Fund intermediaries and incentivize the integration of grantee work at individual schools through the community schools approach.
