Our success is measured by the lives we transform: the children who succeed, the families that thrive, the partners that align with us, leveraging resources and expertise to transform the lives of children, young adults, and families in our community and move them forward into a brighter future.
These stories are our commitment to the San Diego County and the challenges we face together: an intern watches a second-grader transform from missing school to setting an attendance record. A volunteer tax-preparer sees a struggling family transform from fearing tax day to looking forward to their EITC refund. A high school student transforms from a teenager with no aspirations into a young person with a future pipelined to a prospering local tech industry.
Change starts small, but UWSD’s goals are big and hopeful: from transforming hundreds of lives to hundreds of thousands of lives in our region.
Shifts in generational attitudes around companies started with Millennials, but Gen Z is taking the concept of incorporating Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) into business practices from a nice-to-have to a must-have.
No matter our race, background, or ZIP code, we all want our children to learn in a safe environment that inspires imagination, cultivates curiosity and critical thinking, and ensures our children can pursue their academic potential. Regardless of the challenges that students face at home, we want their learning experience to be filled with opportunities to succeed.
