STEAD is rooted in a diverse set of partnerships. Seeking to model ourselves after the healthy ecosystems of which we hope to be good stewards, we value our growing network of people and organizations committed to be thought partners, financial partners, and academic partners with students as they pursue work-based learning and internship opportunities.

STEAD relies on our industry, educational, and community partners to ensure the audacious goal of providing our students with real, authentic contexts in their project-based learning experience. We are always looking for guest speakers, site-based fieldwork experiences (everything from an hour visit to week-long service projects), and supervised internship experiences as part of our Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources pathways.


1. I want to partner financially through a donation of equipment or funds…

2. I want to partner educationally through a fieldwork, internship, or guest-speaker experience…

3. I have another idea of how we might partner toward a shared mission for kids…
