The Education Partnerships program mission is to promote educational equity in our local communities by engaging Stanford students and community youth in mentoring and tutoring relationships.
Education Partnerships comprises five mentoring and tutoring programs committed to the development of educational equity in our communities. The programs share an organizational structure that encourages student engagement: a Haas Center staff program director, a pool of 20 to 65 volunteer mentors or tutors, and a Stanford student leadership team of 3–7 team leaders.
- Preschool Counts: Stanford students share math learning with East Palo Alto children so they are prepared to succeed in elementary school. (Partner: St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School)
- Ravenswood Reads: Stanford students are tutors in reading and language acquisition for Kindergarten-3rd graders, most of whom are learning English as a second language. (Partner: Ravenswood City School District, East Palo Alto Library)
- Science in Service: Stanford students are mentors to 4th-8th grade students on hands-on, project-based science activities. (Partners: Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, Ravenswood City School District, and La Honda-Pescadero Unified)
- East Palo Alto Stanford Academy (EPASA): Stanford students are mentors and tutors to East Palo Alto middle school students who receive academic support in language arts and mathematics, academic enrichment and one-on-one mentorship. (Partner: Ravenswood City School District)
- High School Support Initiative: Stanford students are plugged into existing in-school and afterschool programming at local high schools, serving as mentors and tutors to high school youth. (Partners: Gunn High School, Menlo-Atherton High School, East Palo Alto Academy and Sequoia High School).
