Revive the Village

It is our responsibility to ensure our kids get a good, quality education . While United Way of Delaware focuses on the academic needs of all of our children, its African-American community initiative: Revive the Village specifically addresses challenges unique to young African-American males in our community.

In 2014, former President Barack Obama established the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) Task Force at the federal level. The MBK Task Force focused on closing and eliminating the opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color so that all young people have the chance to reach their full potential.

Revive the Village has identified four core goals to address the academic disparities within specific communities and working to increase the following:

Student Readiness

We are committed to helping students meet developmental milestones. This starts by making sure children are entering kindergarten on time and they are ready to learn and interact appropriately with others.

Grade-Level Reading

As kids get older, academic success depends heavily on reading proficiency. That’s why we’re focused on making sure every young African-American boy in Delaware and Salem County are reading on grade-level by 3rd grade.

Successful Promotion

Education is a life-long journey. For our young people, keeping them excited about learning is the best way to maintain momentum and keep them on track for a smooth transition into middle school.

On-Time Graduation

The numbers don’t lie. Kids who graduate from high school on-time make more money and get in less trouble than kids who don’t. Making sure young African-American males walk across the stage on-time, opens pathways for them to pursue college or begin a career.

Mission, Vision & Goals

The mission of United Way of Delaware’s Revive the Village is to improve the academic success of young African-American men in Delaware from birth to graduation and beyond. We do this by mobilizing the collective power of the Delaware community. This mission is achieved by creating a sense of urgency within the community that the status quo is unacceptable. Giving our young people what they deserve, requires a “village.” One person, organization, or government agency can’t solve these issues alone. But together, we can create a Delaware where all young African-American men achieve their greatest human potential and develop into contributing members of our communities.
