­­­Welcome to the 2019 United Way Student Impact Committee Grant Application!

United Way of Central New Brunswick has partnered with the Leadership Class at McAdam High School to form a Student Impact Committee. The United Way Student Impact Committee is a program designed to give high school students the opportunity to take on a leadership role in their community. This allows them to gain experience in areas of teamwork, time management, fund management, communication skills, engagement and volunteering, and public speaking.


The students will be evaluating each application based on its alignment with United Way’s Focus and Investment areas, its impact on the community, and its fit with the identified interests of the UW Student Impact Committee. 

Students will take an active role in promoting the project throughout the school and broader community.

All investments align with United Way's mission, investment principles, and support change in one or more of the following focus areas:

  • Healthy People, Strong Communities

  • Moving people From Poverty to Possibility

  • Helping Kids be All That Kids Can Be



Background on United Way Student Impact Committees:

  • Community impact means changing social conditions and creating opportunities for a better life for individuals, families and stronger communities.

  • Our goal is to generate a measurable and beneficial return in communities where we live.

  • Investments are made locally, within the McAdam area.

  • We are committed to building a resilient community centered on collaboration that reflects the complex needs and opportunities within our communities.

Our investment decisions are made within the framework of the following criteria:

    • Alignment with United Way focus areas
    • Addresses policy, systems or institutional change
    • Addresses community need
    • Applies evidence-based effectiveness
    • Addresses underlying causes of social issues
    • Has community support
    • Demonstrates impact
    • Exhibits excellence in performance and leadership
    • Exhibits strong governance

United Way does not invest in the following:

    • For-profit organizations
    • Political parties
    • Religious activities
    • Deficit funding
