Funded Program: 

Connecting Kids - provides financial assistance for children to participate in a youth development activity who would otherwise not be able to due to a lack of financial resources. Students in grades K-8 in Lincoln, McCook, Minnehaha, and Turner counties are eligible for one Connecting Kids scholarship per calendar year.

If you are interested in becoming an affiliated activity/program with the Connecting Kids program, please fill out the application linked below. 

Participating Programs

Local studies show that cost and lack of awareness are reasons some children are not able to join the numerous activities available to them across the Sioux Empire. Connecting Kids ensures every child in Lincoln, McCook, Minnehaha, and Turner Counties has the same opportunity for getting involved in extra-curricular activities.

If you or someone you know is in need of financial assistance, Connecting Kids will help to enroll a child in a free or reduced-fee activity of your choice. To sign up your child for an activity, please call one of the organizations below and mention the Connecting Kids program. For more questions, you are welcome to call the United Way office at 605.336.2095 or send us an email.
