Mission Statement

Our mission is to connect businesses and individuals with schools and youth-serving nonprofit organizations that serve them, in order to improve public education in ways that support a more vibrant economy, the health of our community and the well-being of local children and their families.

Partners in Education (Partners) was born out of the efforts of local leaders in business and education, known first as the Community Career Development Council in 1977 and then as the Industry Education Council in 1981. The group became Partners in Education in 2000 and attained nonprofit status in 2001. Partners is administered by the Santa Barbara County Education Office, providing it with a level of access to schools that is rare for a nonprofit, and critical, in adequately serving student needs.

Program 1

Santa Barbara Partners in Education Programs

Partners maintains three key programs:
1. Computers for Families seeks to eliminate the negative consequences of the digital divide by providing computers, internet access, training, ongoing maintenance and support to low-income 4th, 5th and 6th grade students and their families. Students are identified by teacher referral.
2. The Volunteer Program recruits, trains and places volunteers to meet specific educator requests. Our services are concentrated on school districts with little parent or community support and those with the highest rates of students enrolled in the Free/Reduced Lunch Program.
3. The Paid Student Internship Program provides 60 disadvantaged youth each year with a seven-week job preparation program and places them into substantive paid internships in their career field of interest. Student participants play an active role in their internship placements by researching potential internship sites, and then crafting tailored resumes and cover letters to help land their interviews. Hispanic/Latino students (68%) are our largest ethnic group. For the 2014-15 school year, 62% of Internship Program students qualified as Severely Economically Disadvantaged, putting them below the HUD threshold of $60,550 for Santa Barbara County.
