Across Denton ISD, over 10,000 children are at risk of dropping out of school according to our Community Needs Assessment. United Way of Denton County is the backbone organization behind Mentor Denton, a community collaboration to promote volunteerism through local non-profits. Together with our partner agencies, Denton ISD, the City of Denton and other community partners, our goal is to help every at-risk student stay on track to graduate into a career or college.
With a little more than $1 a day, your sponsorship supports the cost to recruit, train and support mentors, tutors, group leaders and other volunteers in our commmunity who help children stay on the path to graduation and success. United Way of Denton County has established a Mentor Denton Fund designated to support the Mentor Denton initiative. This fund will be utilized exclusively to support the non-profit organizations participating in Mentor Denton to match volunteer mentors with at-risk youth in Denton County. Your secure online donation to United Way of Denton County’s Mentor Denton Fund will be processed through PayPal.
