This program empowers local students to support other school-age kids in their community, in a meaningful and tangible way. Schools can arrange the form of hands-on community service that works best for their students. And for those who want to do even more, this program also offers a volunteer component in which students and parents can come to our facility, learn about our cause and lend a hand.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS WE ENGAGE STUDENTS:
Host a fundraiser
Throw a bake sale or get creative with a fundraiser of any kind. Every penny raised goes directly to underfunded schools nearby.
Organize a coin drive.
Perhaps the simplest way to raise money is by collecting coins. Everybody has loose change, and even the smallest donations have the power to truly change lives.
Collect school supplies.
Set up a supply drive or drop-off location at your school. We’ll distribute the items you collect to local students in need.
It is important to our school and community to provide our students with authentic community service opportunities. Teaming up with The Education Partnership has undoubtedly helped by providing students with genuine growth opportunities that enhance our program and, ultimately, fosters the academic and social growth of our students.Mark Miller, Principal, Eisenhower Elementary
We serve schools in Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland counties, and if you’d like to engage your students in a gratifying community service project, please contact Peggy Wolstoncroft at Peggy@TheEducationPartnership.org.
Even our littlest partners make a big difference in the lives of local kids!
