Partner with a Principal

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Business and​ community leaders will be on their way back to school for the Partner with a Principal program. During the fall, local corporate executives and community leaders will work alongside Phoenix public, charter, and private school principals to actively participate in the school’s administration for one day. 

After experiencing the life of a school principal for a day, the principals and their executive counterparts will discuss how local businesses, community leaders and schools can form lasting partnerships to improve the quality of education, workplace readiness, and leadership development programs in Phoenix.

For the 2022 PWAP program, fifty-nine business and schools were matched! Schools from fifteen Phoenix school districts and six charter schools participated. Local businesses invested in Phoenix schools and provided resources to students such as science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) opportunities, grant writing assistance, community gardens and professional development opportunities.
