Thank you for your interest in Partners For Success, a support office for the Program in Education.

Partners For Success (PFS) works with select service-learning education courses to support meaningful field experiences for education minors, teaching certification candidates, and any undergraduate who has an interest in service-learning, child development, and the field of education.
The goals of PFS are to:

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

Currently, PFS is partnered with the following courses:

  • Social and Philosophical Foundations of Education (EDUC 101)
  • Educational Psychology (EDUC/PSYCH 240)
  • Children, Schools and Society (EDUC 243)
  • Educational Leadership (EDUC 363)
