A note from Education Connection, Executive Director

Thank you for all your encouragement as we have navigated this year. Thank you to everyone that has supported the non-direct ways of serving this Fall.

After multiple conversations  amongst the Education Connection board, district partners and local health authorities–we are pausing all in-person volunteering for the entire 2020-21 school year. To best achieve Education Connection’s goals, safety for our volunteers and responsibility to district/school/church and community partners there will be no in-person/ on campus Education Connection reading (as we had hoped). We will continue to serve in non-direct opportunities for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.

It is our goal to return more determined in the 2021-22 school year. The unique season we are in has shown us that the mission of Education Connection is extremely valuable. Our support for students and schools will increase and we need YOU to be ready to come back strong in 2021-22. As our journey moves forward, look for updates via emails and at education-connection.org.

Be Safe,


Amy Hagen, LMSW
