Mission & History
Our mission is to empower students for the world ahead through business, school, and community collaboration. We do this by creating and supporting inspiring, skill-building opportunities for youth along their TK-12 journey.
Schools cannot do the work alone.
We believe effective partnerships are essential to supporting and preparing youth for college, career, or simply the next grade.
Partners in Education was first formed in 1977 by leaders in the business and education communities. Partners grew and evolved into a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization in 2000.
