Partnership 4 Kids' students come from diverse family dynamics and low-income households. Their past helps shape them, but it is the guidance & mentorship they receive today and every day going forward that will have the biggest impact on their future.

P4K helps students create a foundation for success from pre-kindergarten to careers through our 4 program pillars: goal setting, mentoring, college access, and career exploration.

Our work is made possible by more than 400 mentors, 25 community partners, and individuals like you. Thank you for helping us achieve our goal of preparing our next generation for a lifetime of success! Together we are building a stronger community by inspiring hope, engaging minds, and preparing our future leaders for a lifetime of success!
