Making a Difference in the Lives of Children

What is Partners in Education?

  • To enhance the learning place and make students better prepared for future decisions.

What do Partners offer students?

There are different levels of partnerships ranging from Lunch Buddies to Tutors to Circle Partners, all of which address aspects of the PIE needs. 

Activites Include:

  • Lunch Buddies
  • Career Orientation
  • Tutoring
  • School Event Participation
  • Job Shadowing
  • Christmas Sponsorship
  • and much more!

What can being a Partner bring to a company or organization?
