Education is a cornerstone for success in school, work and life. Setting kids on the path to success begins with early intervention, and then, through high-quality education, students can graduate high school prepared for college & career. United Way of Kershaw County focuses on long-term solutions and addressing opportunity gaps throughout the cradle-to-career pipeline in order to keep kids on track to graduating prepared for success.


Hand in Hand Mentoring Program

The Hand in Hand Together Mentoring Program is an initiative of the United Way of Kershaw County. The goal is to pair students who need additional adult support with a community volunteer who has been screened and trained, and who has agreed to commit his or her time to a student. The mentoring will serve to remind these students that there are people who believe they can achieve their goals, regardless of their obstacles. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the United Way’s Mentor program director Margaret Lawhorn at 803-432-0951.
