Become a Partner

 

What does partnership mean? 

 

Partners in Education partners are:

  • Businesses (Large and small)
  • City, County and State Government Agencies
  • Colleges and Universities
  • Faith communities and houses of worship
  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Public and private foundations
  • Schools serving pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 students
  • Service organizations
  • Trade unions

 

And individuals with a heart for serving our community!


What we can do as partners in education and as Partners in Education: 

  • Assist with your company or service organization’s team-building efforts
  • Assist in finding schools and students to take part in community youth-development programs
  • Help your entity reach area nonprofits regarding information and available services
  • Help nonprofits and service organizations gain larger audiences in the community at programs focused on parents, caregivers and children
  • Help your business, faith community or nonprofit connect to area schools for volunteer opportunities
  • Partner with you to incubate new (or expand currently successful) program models in area schools
  • Partner with you on grant projects or community initiatives that will improve grades pre-K-12 education and/or strengthen area families
  • Provide background checks for your volunteers
  • Provide expert professional development and technical assistance (focused on capacity building for education nonprofits and strengthening families)
  • Provide volunteer training for those who work with children in educational settings
  • Serve as a fiscal agent to foster a new education program model
  • And of course, put your foundation, corporate and individual donation dollars immediately to work to improve mentoring, tutoring and career-readiness for students and success for families in Toledo-area schools and neighborhoods.
