Become a Partner

If the business community fails to become actively involved to help public education succeed, in less than two decades the American economy will run out of its most essential energy source–human energy.

How it Works

Education Elevators works closely with your business/organization to ensure that our program aligns with your strategic plan. Our program will help find a school that will be the best partner for your business, based on your business’s and the school’s needs, goals and resources.  

To ensure the overall success of every partnership and Elevator, we have established robust guidelines* outlining the basic roles and responsibilities of our program staff and each of the partnering entities.

We support every partnership from the earliest stages of program implementation, recruitment and the application process, matching Elevators with students, and sustaining the partnership long-term. 

Benefits of Becoming a Corporate Partner 

  • Build strategic, valuable partnerships in your local community.
  • Offer your employees the opportunity to engage and grow in areas outside of their normal roles – and by doing so, increase your employee motivation, performance, and retention.
  • Demonstrate your company’s commitment to inclusion and diversity by teaming up with students from a wide array of backgrounds.
  • Increase positive public relations and broaden your company’s recognition in the local community.
  • Motivate employees by supporting a cause they value, while highlighting the company’s commitment to the community and its values to the public. 

A Tailored Partnership

ee partner02We honor your budget - Education Elevators partnerships are tailored to fit any company budget! 

We honor your values and strategic plan - Your partnership is uniquely designed to connect your business values and strategic plan with the specific needs of a school. For example, if your company emphasizes creativity as a key to success, we can help you share this value by matching your Elevators with students who would benefit from activities that encourage their creativity.

We honor your diverse interests – Not every employee has the time or interest in becoming an Elevator. There are many ways that employees who are not Elevators can contribute to a partnership with less than a weekly commitment, and still make a direct, positive impact on a student. Occasional field trips, job shadowing, and career days are great ways that employees throughout your company can make meaningful, even life-changing connections with students in your partner school.
