Whether they live with you, work with you, or care about the same causes, your community shares your challenges and cares about your success!

What We Have In Common

We tend to think of schools, businesses, churches, government offices, and hospitals as separate entities. But the same children and families live, work, worship, vote, and visit the doctor – often in the same few square miles. By connecting to your local school, you are supporting these same children, families, and neighbors who share your challenges and needs. Your success is their success!

Watch how the Arizona State Library, AZBSN, and School Connect collaborated to help every child in their community access their education! Who do you care about and how can you join forces with your local school to make a difference?

“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”

Laveen Community Fights Food Insecurity

Agave Farms, Urban Farming Education, Saint Mary’s Food Bank, Laveen School District, and Laveen Community Action Committee team up to meet the needs of hungry families through their school food delivery system! Using School Connect’s model of strategic collaboration, the Laveen community gave away half a million pounds of food, began teaching families about sustainable urban gardens, distributed testing and vaccinations for COVID, and they are just getting started!

Why Connect To School Communities?

School communities are the hub of the neighborhood! All the strengths, challenges, and needs of children and families are represented at the local school. By connecting around schools, we can build a village of support that can change outcomes for Arizona children – helping every child have access to the resources, opportunities, and support they need to reach their potential!

Join Our Village

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

Why sponsor a student’s STEM “Game Day” Field Trip? While STEM careers are the future of education, the research shows that more than 2/3rds of middle school students do not enter high school ready to start working toward a STEM career.
As Principal Ontiveros says, “You can’t dream about something you don’t know about.”
But together, we can give kids a vision for their career potential, as well as connections and resources to help them prepare. Early support makes the difference. Every student deserves a STEM Choice. Sponsor a student today!
