Join the Movement
At United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, income has always been one of our areas of focus, because we understand the importance of a good-paying job in a person’s life. As our world has been reshaped by COVID-19, we’re more committed than ever to developing and investing in workforce programs that will provide a path forward for our hardworking neighbors throughout metropolitan Dallas.
Income is an area that affects our entire economy. When more North Texans prosper, our region as a whole enjoys greater prosperity. In fact, if we can increase by 20% the number of young adults who earn a living wage, we’ll add nearly $800 million to our local economy. And it is our goal to do just that by the year 2030, as part of our Aspire United 2030 goals—our North Star for driving significant progress in the areas of education, income and health over the next decade.
We invite you to join our movement and create opportunity for all North Texans. You can have a direct impact on workforce development in our region by:
- Volunteering for our Digital Skills Training Program, in which you’ll coach and motivate digital learners with tasks such as setting up an Indeed and LinkedIn profile and alerts, navigating through Microsoft Office programs, and other various professional technology skills.
- Making a donation to United Way, which will help support our workforce development initiatives. Click here to make a donation or to join one of our Giving Societies.
