Partnership is central to the success of our work in providing quality secondary education for young people around the world. Connect To Learn is facilitating collaboration among global companies, individuals, educators, governments, development agencies, and other stakeholders who value universal access to education globally. Together with partners we aim to help improve access to quality secondary schooling and educational resources for millions of girls and boys and their teachers worldwide.

Our goal is to create a powerful coalition of inspired leaders in support of education and personal empowerment for young people everywhere, with a special emphasis on girls. As partners in Connect To Learn, organizations can contribute funding for the Connect To Learn scholarship program, contribute in-kind donations and support, collaborate through employee engagement programs, and provide training, mentoring and internship opportunities for students and/or teachers in the countries in which we work.

Joining forces, we can work together to address one of the world's most pressing challenges in the fight against global poverty by facilitating universal access to education. For more information on becoming a corporate partner, please email
