Appreciation to our Community Partners

The Pasadena Unified School District

We collaborate with PUSD on many projects and programs, including Parents As Leaders Training, Open Enrollment, and numerous district level committees.

Pasadena Educational Foundation

PEF’s mission is to support, enhance, and supplement the programs, initiatives, and priorities of the PUSD.  PEF works with schools to set-up annual funds, awards scholarships to students, awards teacher grants, and supports the Robotics, Summer Enrichment, and other PUSD programs.  PEF and PEN collaborate on numerous programs and community outreach projects including the Realtor Initiative.

PTA Council of Pasadena

PEN provides trainings for PTA officers to increase their effectiveness in working with diverse populations, building cross cultural bridges, and facilitative leadership.

Families Forward Learning Center

PEN provides Parents As Leaders parent programs to the under-served families at Families Forward Learning Center, and prepare them for the transition to Kindergarten and beyond.

College Access Plan

CAP provides PUSD students with college preparation and planning support free of charge.  Since parent support is critical to a student's successful college journey, PEN and CAP are partnering to educate parents about the college planning process.

Pasadena-Foothills Association of Realtors (PFAR)

We partner with PFAR and the Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF) to educate and connect local realtors with our schools. This includes a PUSD Certification class where realtors learn more about PUSD’s innovative programs, get resources for their clients, and tour a school.

Kids Klub

Kids Klub graciously provides childcare to PEN families who attend our Annual  Poker Tournament and Wine Tasting Event.
