Community Partner Application

Community Partner Application

Thank you for your commitment to the Bright Futures Joplin Initiative. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to get involved in making a difference in the life of a child and ultimately improving the quality of life for families in our community. Every partner has something unique to offer that will support the needs of the children we serve. We appreciate your willingness to offer the resources of your business and be a partner with our schools.

Bright Futures affirms that:

 Our goal is to match diverse business, faith-based, human service agencies and parent groups to every school in the district, to provide the community support necessary for the success of every student.

 Each partner will determine its own level of participation, but should be willing to commit for the full school year.

 Every effort will be made to match a partner with the school of their choice, but this may not always be possible.

 Quarterly meetings with school personnel will be strongly encouraged.
