School Connect researches and develops the best practices to build a supportive, collaborative community around schools. We utilize the principles of “Asset Based Community Development” to focus on what various partners have to offer, and how to use the best assets of the community to build sustainable, mutually beneficial relationships.
How do we accomplish all of this, the same way we help schools, we build relationships. School Connect meets with superintendents and principals about the benefits of collaborative partnerships. We talk with leaders in the faith community and help them connect to a local school. We connect the schools to business partners, universities, non-profits and other community leaders.
We host serving events such as Love Our Schools Day, with thousands of participants from dozens of churches and community partners serving at hundreds of Arizona Schools. We help school districts host a CAFÉ, Community, and Family Engagement, meeting, where the school principals and staff meet with their community partners to strategize a collaborative plan for their school’s success. Once a year, we host the School Connect Summit, an event where community partners can learn about the best practices or building collaborative partnerships around local schools.
