Our Partners

Education Connection could not be where it is today without the following key partnerships. We thank each one of you wholeheartedly with our deepest thanks and greatest appreciation! Your generosity, whether financially and/or by providing volunteers, helps Education Connection be positioned to focus on addressing the systemic problem of 3rd grade literacy in the Greater Austin Area. Thank you for helping us toward our mission of seeing every child reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade.
