College & Successful Careers


PENCIL is the leader in creating innovative models of collaboration between businesses and public schools.  Working at the intersection of school needs and business expertise, we bring together the best ideas, talent, and resources across sectors to improve school and student performance.
We forge and guide relationships between business and school leaders, who bring their collective energies to address critical school challenges in the areas of school leadership, family engagement, student engagement, school infrastructure, and college and career readiness. And we provide high school students with comprehensive career development and tangible work experience as PENCIL Fellows.
We then take the lessons that we learn working in individual schools, study our Partners’ solutions and successes, and develop best practices and flexible models that can be replicated and adapted in schools across the country.
