An educated workforce is critical to the success of Midland businesses. Partners In Education is a program of Midland ISD that allows employee volunteers to share their time and knowledge with students. Businesses also provide in-kind services such as apprenticeships and internships, part-time jobs, tutoring, scholarships or equipment and supplies.
Midland businesses can partner with an individual school, or the school district. Each partnership is based on the expertise of the business and its ability to help. Partners in Education is a program of the Midland ISD; HOWEVER, teachers and administrators from all Chamber member area schools (public, private and charter schools) are eligible to request assistance HERE.
