Tyler’s Story

Sharing a Passion for Education

I want to be part of the change because I don’t think we can take a back seat anymore.

As a young child, Tyler struggled with reading and writing and was almost held back in school. Luckily, his family had the resources to support his education and get him past those challenges—an experience that made him passionate about ensuring all students have the tools and knowledge they need to succeed.

Tyler had always admired how United Way of Metropolitan Dallas works to tackle local social issues, and after trying a few volunteer events, he was hooked. Today, he encourages other young people to look at what’s not working in their community, stand up and be part of the movement to make it right.
