United Way partners with Horry County Schools to help kids
Horry County, S.C. (WPDE) —
United Way of Horry County is partnering with four Horry County schools to help students stay on track during the school year.
Board members said they saw a need for students to get one-on-one attention so they don't fall behind in school.
Volunteers are now offering tutoring and mentoring to help those children.
Julia Nichols, with United Way, said the one-on-one attention can go further than just inside the classroom.
"Not only elevates the learning opportunity but also expedites the learning opportunity and gets the students back on track at a faster pace. But also not only does it get them back on track, but also builds a positive influence in that student's life," she said.
This is the second year for the partnership.
