Let’s All Come Together To Help Students Thrive
The students of our country have enormous potential to learn and thrive in school and beyond.
However, additional caring adults in and out of schools are needed to help educators and families address critical educational and mental health challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our students can thrive when we all pitch in – in a coordinated, research-based, locally driven, all-in effort worthy of America’s students.
The National Partnership for Student Success is a public-private partnership committed to providing the supports that will help our students succeed.
Answering the President’s Call to Action
The NPSS supports a nationwide three-year effort that brings together experienced organizations to recruit, screen, train, support, and engage an additional 250,000 caring adults in roles serving as tutors, mentors, student success coaches, wraparound service coordinators, and post-secondary transition coaches.
They will work in close coordination with parents, educators, and others in roles that research shows result in gains in reading and math, high school and college graduation rates, reductions in chronic absenteeism, and improved student well-being and mental health.
The NPSS will help our nation meet this goal by supporting schools, non-profit organizations, colleges, workplaces, state agencies, and community-based champions in working together to provide students with people-powered supports based on locally determined needs. It will help organizations expand, improve and/or create high-quality, evidence-based programs to support students’ learning and thriving.
Join Us to Support Young People to Recover and Thrive
Ensuring our nation’s young people have what they need to thrive will require all of us.
We invite colleges and universities to partner with K-12 schools and community based organizations, providing their post-secondary students with meaningful opportunities to support K-12 students' success through work-study and other opportunities.
