United Way of Mid-Maine’s three “Community Impact Teams” have been established to assure that decisions around partner agency funding allocations as well as agency facilitated and/or supported projects and initiatives are directly addressing the identified community issues and our guiding principles. These teams of dedicated volunteers hold our partners, volunteers, and staff accountable for outcomes. Each team has a vision statement and a set of desired community results.
The vision and desired community outcomes for the Strengthening Children, Youth, and Families CIT are:
Vision: Children and youth reach their fullest potential.
Desired Outcomes: Children have on-going early childhood development opportunities so that they enter Kindergarten ready-to-learn; children and youth are provided with positive youth development experiences; youth are provided resources to assist them in developing life skills, such as financial literacy, job readiness, good citizenship, management of health and well-being, and skills for future parenting; parents have the knowledge and skills to nurture their children and model positive behavior for their families.
The Strengthening Children, Youth, and Families CIT meets on the fourth Thursday of every month. If you are interested in joining this CIT, please respond to this opportunity!
All United Way of Mid-Maine volunteers are Agents of IMPACT (Imagine Many People Affecting Change Today)! From those who help out just once, for an hour, to those who volunteer every day. Whether you provide office support, direct services, or sit on a board. All Agents contribute innovations, expertise, passion, and unique perspectives to every project, big and small.
