Adopt-A-School

Adopting a school provides sponsors with a unique team-building experience and a rewarding way of seeing the impact of their contribution. Every year, we connect businesses, organizations, and community members with schools in need, facilitating the creation and distribution of Power Tools Homework Kits for students.

SEE THE ADOPT-A-SCHOOL PROGRAM IN ACTION

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

Connect with a school

Adopt a local school that’s eligible for help, and provide the funds to supply each student with their very own Power Tools Homework Kit.

Contact Kiki@TheEducationPartnership.org to talk about sponsorship opportunities.

Assemble the kits

Come to The Education Partnership to build your school’s Power Tools Homework Kits—and build camaraderie while you’re at it!

Share the love

Attend an assembly at the school to speak to students, distribute the kits, and see the impact of your efforts first-hand.

What is a Power Tools Homework Kit?

Our Power Tools Homework Kits are designed to provide the basic supplies students need to fully engage in their schoolwork. While our Teacher Resource Center helps teachers stock their classrooms, our Adopt-A-School program stocks an individual student’s home with markers, erasers, glue, and more! We have different kit types for different grade levels, ensuring that every student gets a kit tailored to their needs.

There are only good reasons to participate in the Adopt-A-School Program! The staff at The Education Partnership is a blast to work with! They are organized, responsive, kind, and FUN! This experience opens your eyes to diverse areas of the Pittsburgh Community and is a nice “perspective check” to the importance of supporting our students and teachers. From beginning to end, participating in the Adopt-A-School program is incredibly inspiring. The first time you get to see the children receive their bags you will know you made the right decision!
