School Liaison Practicum
Community members and educational advocates make up our group of School Liaisons who partner with our public, elementary schools. These dedicated volunteers develop relationships with campus leadership by regularly checking-in, developing an understanding of specific resource needs, rallying their personal network to activate community support, and assisting each campus as they strive to reach their goals.Be A Liaison
Community Campus Day
This signature program occurs annually across each of our Dallas ISD elementary partner schools and is a high-energy opportunity for community investment.

Learning Environment Impact
Campus Projects since 2018
Campus climate not only sets the tone for every learning experience a child has on our campus, but it also determines what students ultimately believe about their own potential.
