Mesa United Way supports a number of programs that teach children and teens the values and skills that will help them to become successful adults. These programs rely heavily on qualified, trustworthy adult volunteers and often include outdoor experiences such as hiking and camping that get young people out of their urban comfort zone of smart phones and video games. They learn about the natural environment and acquire survival and team-building skills that contribute to character-building. Your $100 donation covers many of the support costs for one youth's participation for one year. Your donation will go to the Mesa Unites Fund, which supports these and similar services.
