This is the index page for Noozhawk’s series on the Santa Barbara Partners in Education President’s Council.

Thanks to Chelsea Duffy, Gerardo Banuelos, Jenae Jeppsen and Shannon Thompson of the Santa Barbara Partners in Education, we’ll be profiling volunteers from President’s Council companies and organizations to highlight the important role they play in inspiring local students — our employees of tomorrow.

Santa Barbara Partners in Education is a nonprofit 501(c)3 administered by the Santa Barbara County Education Office. Partners programs include a Volunteer Recruitment program serving K-12 public schools and nonprofit organizations; a Paid Job Readiness Training & Internship program for deserving high school students; and Computers for Families, a program working to close the digital divide.
