Mission & Values

Our mission is to build the movement for education justice by supporting congregations and their members who are exploring, forming, and leading community partnerships with public schools.

We believe that partnering with public schools is an urgent mission for people of faith. We know partnerships between congregations and schools are an effective path to address racism and economic inequity; to serve communities; and to revitalize congregations. We are leading the Episcopal Church’s participation in a movement to improve the quality of public education. We particularly address the opportunity gap facing children living in poverty. We shorten the learning curve for congregations just starting out by fostering a community, creating materials, and hosting events. Our community also connects leaders and volunteers with active partnerships, bringing them encouragement, hope and  relationships
