United Learning Center grew out of United for Literacy, an initiative launched by United Way of Santa Barbara County in 2010. Its goal was to increase the number of local students reading at or above grade level by 50% before the end of this decade.

With limited resources and an audacious objective, we found a solution in software-based tools that make it possible for each student to receive individualized instruction and guidance.

United for Literacy became so successful that we received requests from parents whose kids’ schools were not participating. How could their children get access to these tools? We realized that our impact in the community would be multiplied by working with any student who felt they could benefit…and the United Learning Center was born.
