Helping Quad City urban students realize their full potential - in school and in life

QC United

PeteQC United is a dynamic non-profit organization dedicated to providing positive social/emotional experiences for youth through educational programs and college scholarships. The organization is ran primarily by volunteers and focuses on two key educational needs:

  • QC United offers the "Swing into Education" Scholarship Program that provides a minimum of 6 college scholarships per year as well as programming for high school students that promotes the soft skills needed for a competitive work force.
  • QC United created the Pete the Purple Bull Program that offers an interactive educational experience for children and families through engaging lessons that incorporate music, dance, art and drama for the purpose of teaching positive social/emotional skills.

QC United & ReFL3X Partner for Positive Change

QC United partners with RE-FL3X, a Hip-Hop dance troup led by Juan Valtierra, a community–minded mentor and dance instructor. RE-FL3X offers Hip-Hop dance classes in the QC United dance studio (located at The Center– 1411 Brady St Davenport, IA) and the RE-FL3X team accompanies Pete the Purple Bull to many school and community events, teaching about respect and kindness. More about Re-FL3X.
