United Way partners with Horry County Schools to help kids


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.

Volunteers can sign up for the program at
