As a non-profit organization, Education Alliance bridges the private sector and community with P-16 education (Pre-Kindergarten through college graduation) in Washoe County. We accomplish this by establishing effective partnerships between business and community organizations and specific schools or programs. As a community, we firmly believe each of us has an invested interest and shared responsibility to ensure our students have the skills necessary to successfully compete in our ever-evolving economy. The impact from partnerships is significant, bringing necessary resources and expertise to the learning environment and helping create relevant pathways for our student population.
The core of Education Alliance’s mission is to illuminate diverse pathways for Washoe County School District students to encourage them to pursue fulfilling careers. Each and every conversation we have with our community partners and school principals centers around: “How will the proposed activity benefit students?” and, “Is this a mutually beneficial opportunity for all interested parties?” We cultivate relationships based on alignment of common objectives and provide a range of opportunities for involvement. Business is keenly interested in a talented workforce that has depth. Education wants to provide an engaged and skilled graduate. Together, we have alignment of goals and Education Alliance nourishes partnerships toward this purpose.
Education Alliance accomplishes its mission through the following initiatives to improve the quality of education in our community: Partners in Education; Caring for Classrooms; Principal for a 1/2 Day; Teachers’ Warehouse; and the P-16 Advocacy Council.
