Share your network, resources, and voice.

join our village

Help us connect a village of community support to every local school, so that every child has the resources and connections needed to reach their potential!

Change Starts With Us

Every child should have the connections and resources to thrive, but often children are disconnected and face life’s challenges alone. Together, we can be a village of support—connecting children to a brighter future.

What is School Connect?

Connecting Schools to Community…because it takes a village to help every child reach their potential!

Doing this alone is impossible; it takes all of us working together to make a difference.

The Future Is Bright

We asked these kids about their hopes and dreams. Their vibrant answers remind us that the future is in good hands when we empower children to become the leaders they were born to be. Help us build a village of support around every school so that EVERY CHILD is connected to their full potential!

"Whether we are working with Tracey and her team to overcome the digital divide in the community, handing out laptops, textbooks, digital hot spots, school supplies, or simply giving a hot cup of coffee to a teacher on a Monday morning to make their week a little bit easier, we feel truly blessed to be able to help."

Bryan Kuster

"When you engage with School Connect, you engage with an entire community. It’s business partnerships, it’s families, it’s schools - it’s everybody coming together to make life better for our students."

Nedda Shafir

"To see their faces when we showed up to help distribute lunches and different things, is priceless! Find it in your heart – I know it’s already there. Let’s go and serve those schools, let’s go and partner, let’s go and make sure our kids are taken care of."

Jerome Parker

"I think there are a lot of people who want to help out in public schools, they just simply don’t know how. And so, School Connect has the framework and the model to be able to do that and bring people together."

Dr. Cort Monroe

"It’s a tremendous asset to Arizona and to Arizona school districts, and it’s a service that has been needed for a very long time…because all of these groups are working toward the same goals but working parallel instead of in collaboration. So, it’s a tremendous organization that is bringing us all together and accomplishing great things."
