Mission & Vision

Hope and Opportunity in all Public Schools

The Mission

School Partners USA creates hope and opportunity by equipping leaders to catalyze local school partnerships that improve educational and life outcomes for students. Our goal, simply stated, is for all  students and schools to thrive, without exception or condition. We are an initiative of Thrive Collective, a NY-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The Vision

Where We are Going

We partner with public schools to make a real difference in student lives. The kind of difference that actually improves educational and life outcomes.  Resourcing schools as authentic, trusted partners is a means to that fundamental, transformational end. Our goal, simply stated, is students and schools that thrive — without exception or condition.
In 2021, School Partners USA launched to celebrate and accelerate school partnerships that improve educational and life outcomes for disadvantaged students. By 2025, we will share best practices, training, and curriculum with leaders and school districts nationwide, and support local school partnerships and arts education networks in those cities.
