Make a Difference
Opportunities to make a meaningful impact on our P-16 community are broad, and we tailor activities to meet the needs of your business or organization. We refer to relationships with education as "partnerships" because as a partner, resources (time, opportunity cost, expertise) are required from both sides of the equation and these resources are respected.
Every company and organization has something of value to support our student population. Smaller organizations provide guest speakers, targeted financial support, and expertise, while larger organizations can also provide consistent volunteer support and other benefits to elevate student achievement.
In forming Partnerships, companies/organizations are strategically matched with schools based on common goals, geography, leadership preferences, and long-term sustainability. To be effective, the relationship must be mutually beneficial for all stakeholders. The Education Alliance helps with the creation of each Partnership and provides accountability in making sure the relationship is meeting common goals agreed upon during the initial conversations.
As a supporter of our programs, we enjoy celebrating your impact every chance we get. You will be added to our growing list of wonderful community contributors.
