Six: Build Partnerships—Expanding the Community Circle

From the Quebec English Schools Network

Building PartnershipsPartners are individuals or groups who feel they have something to gain by their involvement. Therefore, an important step in building partnerships is to understand what are partner's needs and how you may be able to help meet them. For example, volunteers are always encouraged to know that their time and services are truly valued by the school. Corporate partners may be equally interested in seeing how their contribution will help achieve company goals.

Potential school contributions to the partners range widely. Schools may be able to arrange for partner access to computer and other facilities during free periods or after school. Partner contributions of goods and services may be considered tax-deductible donations. Schools may provide access to future employees (e.g., work-study students, student volunteers, etc.), opportunities to explore new educational materials and methods, etc. Finally, partnerships afford community and corporate groups with opportunities to invest in the future by supporting the education of today's youth and to advertise their good citizenship and community spirit.
