We are a STRIVE organization with a mission to unite Greater St. Cloud in the collective pursuit of student success. Our aim is to increase opportunities so children and youth in our area achieve academically, possess strong social-emotional skills, engage in the community, and are ready for post-secondary/career training and experiences. We work with school districts and 50+ other organizations (businesses, education, community agencies, funders and government) in the greater St. Cloud Area. The Partnership serves approximately 17,615 students PreK-12 in a tri-county area. Beyond our work in education, United Way also supports mental health and financial stability.
