How We Work

At Partnership for the Future, we build networks throughout Richmond to provide high-achieving students with the fuel they need to pursue their aspirations.

“Once you’re part of the PFF family, it will be part of your life forever.”

Through PFF, local high school students gain invaluable access to college prep courses, personal development workshops, one-on-one counseling, and college savings-plan incentives. With the help of our corporate and university partners, we arrange college visits and workplace internships that place our students on a clear path from high school to college to the workplace.
