Partners for Schools comes alongside local schools to identify and meet needs through partnerships.
We Need You!
Every year, over 1.2 million U.S. students drop out of high school—one every 26 seconds.
About 25% of U.S. high school freshmen fail to graduate from high school on time.
In the U.S., high school dropouts commit about 75% of crimes.
Preventing Students from Becoming Statistics
To maximize the success of our youth, community support is desperately needed to help stand in the gap. Partners for Schools is committed to coming alongside the local schools to identify the most pressing needs and facilitating partnerships to meet those needs. We encourage alliances with all groups – businesses, individuals, civic, communities of faith – who have a desire to promote a virtuous, high quality education experience for all students.
According to research funded by the Gates Foundation, The Silent Epidemic, students who drop out do not make an impulsive decision one day to suddenly dropout, but do so after "a long process of disengagement" that takes place over years.
Identifying & Meeting Needs
The greatest sustainable influence on a student's success, is the attention of a committed adult mentor. Focusing on skills-based mentoring and apprenticeships, and adult relationships that enhance the development of strong virtues and work ethic—is where our primary focus lives.
"Faith-In-Action" approach to solving the challenges of our culture—committing matters and solutions to prayer—we implement the best ideas.
Establishing, building and protecting relationships in our community—with the school administration and local partners.

Invest your time - You just can't go wrong!
"As a teacher, principal, and superintendent, I've seen how mentors can profoundly affect students' lives and, when integrated and leveraged by schools, can contribute to successful student outcomes."
