Our People


Partnership 4 Kids relies on the dedication of full-time staff, part-time staff, AmeriCorps service members, practicum students, and interns to shepherd students to and through postsecondary education. Many P4K staff and AmeriCorps service members are successful graduates of the organization’s series of programs. Team members are categorized into eight departments: Finance and Human Resources, Development, Curriculum and Evaluation, Recruitment and Training, Elementary Program, Middle School Program, High School Program, and Postsecondary Program. Department heads and the organization president comprise an executive leadership team.
