Community Partnerships

Community is an important thread in the overall tapestry of Paseo. Through a highly experienced network of community partnerships and volunteers, students enjoy a variety of opportunities to hone their craft and prepare for the future. Our Community Partners commit their time, talents and treasures to raise academic achievement and help provide guidance and resources for the next step in a student’s professional journey. We work with community professionals to visit classes and share with our students what they do and how they impact the community. Volunteers share about their job experiences, interesting projects and what it takes to earn their degree and succeed in their industry. In addition, Community Partners provide performance and exhibition opportunities for students, arts workshops, financial support, development workshops, educational mentoring, seminars and much more.
