What is A Shine Partnership?
A Shine partnership is a long-term committed relationship between a church and a school with the goal of meeting the needs of students, families, and teachers.
Shine seeks to bring together the mission and needs of the school with the resources of the church for the common good.
Our long-range vision is to see that every APS Title 1 School has an ongoing, meaningful relationship with one or more of the churches in their community. Our hope is that Shine partnerships will be a valuable, flexible resource for the school, while providing a context for the church to demonstrate love and serve the community.
We believe that when students, their families, and their teachers flourish, individual communities are strengthened. And we hope that as communities are strengthened, our city will become a safer, more compassionate place for generations to come.
