United Way provides a platform for students to create and deliver social value to communities through initiatives that focus on education, income, health and the environment. Student United Way encourages students to participate in social initiatives at college levels. This helps to sensitize them to issues that challenge society, build good networks with the local chapters of United Way, NGOs and corporates through events, campaigns and social media engagement. Student United Way works on a localized approach allowing students to understand and address issues at the community level. It functions as an extension of United Way in creating and delivering social value to the community in a sustainable manner.
