Community Partnership

The Community Partnership Office works to galvanize the power of community to assist young people in creating the future they choose, plan and prepare for. We bring people together to become the voices that young people listen to and believe that say "you can achieve, you will graduate and we are here to help you!"

The REACH for College 5k is a benefit run with a college theme. The REACH Center is rasing funds for its programming and raising awareness about college opportunities for young people who might come from low-income families or think that college isn't for them.

Paper Tigers Documentary Viewing/Discussion
 May 19th  5:00 PM @the PDC
TPS PD Course #3653  - Clock hours available​ 
Following six students over the course of a school year, we see Lincoln’s staff try a new approach to discipline: one based on understanding and treatment rather than judgment and suspension. Using a combination of vérité and revealing diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest  developmental science is showing: that just one caring adult can help break the cycle of adversity in a young person’s life.
