One of our four program pillars, the United Way of Pickaway County is a staunch advocate for educational opportunities for youth in the community we serve. Funding programs aimed at youth like Big Brothers, Big Sisters, PICCA Head Start, and the Pickaway County YMCA Preschool, preserving and sustaining opportunities for the next generation is at the very core of what we do.
Within our vibrant community, we are incredibly thankful to have a series of support networks who also share that passion for youth-centered programming. A few of those organization's - the Pickaway County Family and Children's First Council, Pickaway County YMCA, Circleville Parks Department, and Pickaway County Library have a number of summer programs and events coming up as we turn the calendar over to June for kids to have a great time in a safe, family friendly setting.
