Over the last six years, the class of 2016:
Partnership Scholars Program is always in need of financial partners.
With the financial backing of individual contributors, foundations and corporations, our program has grown to serve over 700 scholars over the last 20 years. We are thrilled with our growth but we are also saddened that for every scholar that we add to our program, there are at least 10 more scholars that we turn away because we do not have the funding.
Sponsors pledge donations of $3,000 per year for the full six years a student will be in our program. This funding provides access to the educational and cultural activities that are similar to what a middle class family would provide for their own college-bound children. These activities include field trips to colleges and universities, museums, concerts, sporting events, exhibits and restaurants exposing our scholars to new and different educational and cultural experiences.
In order to continue this life-changing program and enable our scholars to fulfill their dreams of going to college, we have need for contributions of all sizes. Examples of the many ways we use unrestricted donations :
$5,000 – Enables 10 juniors and seniors to attend a two-day PSP College Access Retreat.
$3,000 – Supports monthly mentoring and college guidance activities for a full year.
$1,500 – Provides four mentor training sessions, ensuring high quality mentoring.
$500 – Covers the costs for one month of a texting service to notify scholars about important resources and deadlines.
$200 – Is the cost to survey scholars, mentors and alumni so that we may continually enhance our program.
$75 – Provides lunch for 10 students at ‘back to school’ meetings.

Planned giving is an opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of children who are motivated to succeed.
In appreciation for what Dr. Langer and his late wife Marianne have done in establishing the Partnership Scholars Program, the Langer Legacy Fund will now support planned gifts. You can ensure that Partnership Scholars Program continues doing the important work of supporting students in their pursuit of a college education well into the future by making a planned gift. Your support to future generations of scholars will become your legacy too.

Partnership Scholars Program is also always looking for mentors.
We always need positive, caring and concerned adults who are willing to become a mentor for our scholars. Our mentors are crucial because they make it possible for our scholars to experience new activities outside of the classroom that help them realize their college dreams
We expect mentors to make arrangements once or twice a month to take their scholars on field trips to new and interesting places that help the scholars achieve their dreams to attend a four year college or university. Supplies and activities should reflect what a middle class family would do for their college bound children. The mentors are reimbursed for these cultural and educational enriching activities when they submit receipts to the administrative office. Mentors also encourage their scholars to keep their grade point averages over a 3.00 and offer college access guidance information throughout the full six years of the program.
