Community Impact Area:  Child and Youth Success

Ensuring all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

THANK YOU for helping Greater Gallatin United Way distribute Literacy Kits to children and families in our community.  Literacy Kits are a fun, engaging way to encourage the love of reading, and to increase literacy skills.

With help from community partners like you, we can achieve these goals!

  • By 2022, 85% of children entering Kindergarten will have requisite literacy skills as measured by STAR early literacy.  (A score of 530 on the STAR assessment is a good predictor of success by 3rd grade.)
  • By 2025, 90% of 3rd Grade Students will demonstrate grade level reading skills by achieving a proficient score on the STAR reading assessment at the end of the school year.

For more information, please contact us at 406.587.2194 or email.
