What is Partnerships in Education?

A strong, skilled, and resilient workforce is vital to West Virginia’s future. Ensuring a strong link between our education system and our business community is critical in this effort. The Partnerships in Education initiative supports and recognizes local schools and districts in the development of strategic partnerships with local businesses and community organizations. Through strong, strategic, and intentional partnerships, West Virginia schools have the potential to prepare students with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in today’s workforce.

In 2020 The Education Alliance:
● Cultivated 285 school-business partnerships aimed at creating opportunities for students across West Virginia.
● Partnered with schools to serve 37,700 students through a variety of programs including mentoring and internships.
● Provided digital resources to 2,800 students to enhance remote learning during the pandemic.
