W. Jackson & Associates is a Proud Supporter of Austin Partners In Education!

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

For the past several months, we’ve had the opportunity to participate in a wonderful Program designed by Austin Partners in Education which provides the opportunity to share reading with 2nd graders in a well deserved Austin School. 

The benefits have been two fold.  Opportunities to assist futures leaders to enhance their reading and social skills are the obvious, but we also learn from the children.  The values of being more patient, kind and understanding can’t be undervalued.  It’s exciting to be able to share experiences and learn from one another.  It’s truly amazing how many amazing things can be learned from young, eager children.  We’re glad to be part of this excellent Program and encourage other to learn how they can volunteer and help shape a positive and thriving future for our young people. 

Austin Partners in Education (APIE) was created as an independent 501(c)(3) organization through a partnership between Austin ISD and the Austin Chamber of Commerce.  By leveraging community resources, APIE provides innovative, scalable, and results-driven programs to schools across Austin.
