United Partnerships Program

Working Together to Help Children & Families Succeed

United Partnerships is a collaboration between People Incorporated, the Fall River School Department, and community and business partners. It is funded by the United Way of Greater Fall River.  Through partnerships, the program creates relationships that strengthen the schools, collaboratively develops priorities, and implements strategies to positively impact student achievement.

The goals of the program are:

  • Build positive peer relationships, sound character, and a culture of peer leadership within Fall River schools
  • Provide support to families in an effort to increase stability and promote educational success for children
  • Create collaborations that enhance current programming within the schools and develop new resources to strengthen the schools

We implement the following strategies to assist in achieving the program’s goals:

  • The partnership provides leadership training, peer mentoring opportunities, and career planning for Fall River students
  • To increase family support, the partnership hosts community resource fairs in Fall River schools which connect families with information about essential basic needs and coordinates parent education opportunities in the schools
  • The program is developing partnerships with other leadership programs being run in the middle schools and with the business community to ensure a comprehensive approach to youth development
