Programs & Initiatives
Partners in Education has three main program areas.
● Volunteer Recruitment and CoordinationThe Volunteer Recruitment and Coordination Program was designed in response to schools’ needs for support from the community. Partners recruits, trains and places volunteers from our community to strengthen the ability of schools to meet the needs of their students. Career Education has been a primary focus for Partners since 1977, supporting activities that prepare students for local jobs such as: Career Day, mock interviews, job shadows, high school academy programs and guest speakers in classrooms.
