Partners for Success is a support office under the Program in Education.

Partners for Success (PfS) works to support

  • Meaningful field experiences for undergraduates in service-learning education courses, future teachers, education minors.
  • Any student who has an interest in service-learning, child development and education-related volunteering.

The goals of PfS are to:

  • Connect Durham teachers and programs with a consistent source of trained volunteer tutors.
  • Provide opportunities for Duke undergraduates to participate in and observe school- and community-based learning environments.
  • Encourage Duke undergraduates to engage prek-12th grade students academically and socially through the cultivation of positive relationships.
  • Facilitate Duke undergraduates’ development through critical reflection that connects field experiences with education coursework.
