Community Partners

Do you have an engaging opportunity for a motivated high school student with a special interest in your field of work?

Do you have time to help mentor a student as he or she explores a topic of interest for high school credit?

Could your business or organization benefit from the involvement of a student intern?

Does your organization offer a learning opportunity that would benefit a group of high school students?

If so, the ELO program needs you! Community Partners are needed to help Manchester high school students succeed in their ELO goals.

Community Partners in the ELO process...

  • Meet with the ELO Coordinator, Cooperating Teacher, and student to discuss student goals
