The Partners Program provides transformative programs that bolster academic achievement and improve access to educational opportunities and resources for under-resourced Oakland public middle school students. To do this, we bring middle school students together with trained high school and college mentors, with the goal of furthering educational equity and success for all.
Partners is a comprehensive three-year, tuition-free, academic enrichment and support program, beginning the summer after our scholars 6th grade year until the summer before they enter high school. The Partners Program consists of three distinct components: Summer Academy (SA), Academic Year Mentoring (AYM), and High School Advising (HSA). All program services are completely tuition free for our families.
