Where there is a need in the Valley, Women Lead...

That is the credo of Women United! a group comprised of 200 Valley Women from all walks of life. United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley's Women United! was established in May of 2014.  The grassroots group is entering its fifth year with its passionate and caring women dedicated to making a tangible impact on the lives of our Valley’s children through volunteering in early Education.  Its members are integral in several United Way programs - giving their time to mentor sixth grade girls in the Young Women’s Mentorship Program, tutoring elementary school children in Project More, Report Card Mentoring and Success After 6.

Women United! members tell you why you should join...

"I really enjoy being part of the Young Women's Mentorship Program at Taft Elementary School. Spending time with the girls and fellow mentors is a highlight of my week - catching up on how things are going, practicing mindfulness techniques together, sharing our life experiences along with the lessons learned from them, and enjoying a unique sense of comradery. Not only does this program encourage and empower young women to dream big, but it also fosters personal growth for the women of all ages who participate. And, the girls' smiles and enthusiasm are the best parts of all!"
Marne Cario



“I’ve been mentoring sixth grade girls for two years. I love knowing I’m helping to put them on the right path to becoming successful young women!”

“Working with the children in Success After 6 has truly impacted my life. I refuse to miss my day at the Youngstown Community School.”
