Click for 2016 Highlights of GGUW's Work

Greater Gallatin United Way kidsLINK Afterschool was established in 1997 in response to an identified need in our rural communities; to keep children safe after school while their parents finished their work day.  During the 2015-16 school year, kidsLINK Afterschool operated in 29 school-based/linked locations across 4 counties and served 1,611 children daily with 3,436 enrolled. kidsLINK is a fun, safe environment providing rich opportunities for learning,  personal growth, and building relationships.  Its success is the result of strong partnerships with schools, school districts, MSU, Gallatin County 4-H and other local organizations.
