One of the things that makes this partnership so beneficial is it really creates a single point of contact where we as a large employer can both support students across a number of school districts, but also work really directly with the leadership of those school districts.
Our Impact This Year
Despite ongoing hindrances felt by the COVID-19 pandemic, here at WABS, we continued to focus on providing opportunities to youth furthest from educational justice through our programs and partnerships during the 2020 to 2021 fiscal year. While the pandemic is far from over, and its impacts will be felt for years to come, moving forward, we hope we continue to rise to meet these challenges in partnership and solidarity and are focused on ensuring that all students, particularly those students furthest from educational justice, receive the support and opportunities they need to succeed.
