College United

When people engage with United Way of Kenosha County, they bring their passion, skills, and vision to our efforts, focusing their sights on the greater good of Kenosha County.  Together, we can accomplish far more.  All of us bring a unique perspective, experience, and enthusiasm to the cause, and that diversity is the wellspring of innovative solutions we need to affect positive change on a large scale.  

Welcome to College United, where passionate student leaders are committed to improving lives and strengthening communities.  College United Way is a student-led community change organization that addresses critical education, income and health issues in our community.  Student leaders improve peoples' lives, develop leadership skills and join the growing United Way movement of giving, advocating, and volunteering on campuses and in the community.
