Springboard partners with school networks from coast to coast. We are honored to have major vendor agreements with some of the nation’s largest school districts, as well as longstanding relationships with charter and parochial schools. Though we serve a broad and diverse range of school communities, they all have something in common: they demand the best for their students and invest in partnerships that help them thrive.

Springboard Collaborative was founded in Philadelphia in 2012. Since our founding, we have partnered with the school district, charters, and Catholic schools, establishing many long-term relationships that are still going strong. Philadelphia is Springboard’s “test kitchen,” where we often pilot new offerings before rolling them out nationally. We are proud to participate in the city’s rich tradition of innovation!

Springboard Collaborative was first brought to the nation’s capital through a partnership with DC Public Schools in 2016. This partnership quickly became one of our fastest-growing relationships, and the District is now one of our oldest sites. Since our partnership has been so fruitful, we chose to pilot Springboard Independent in DC in Summer 2019—an experience that is helping us expand our impact in meaningful and cost-effective ways in DC and beyond.

In 2017, Springboard conducted programming in NYC for the first time. Our founding school partners included Public Prep, PAVE, and Global Community Charter School. Since then, we have also established partnerships with district schools in collaboration with the United Way, the Pinkerton Foundation, and the Heckscher Foundation for Children.
We were thrilled to more than triple Springboard’s reach in New York in just our second year there, and we are excited to see what else the future holds for us in the Big Apple.

Springboard expanded to Oakland in 2015 in partnership with Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) and Education For Change. We leveraged anchor funding from the GreenLight Fund, the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, and the Rogers Family Foundation to launch this now-flourishing site.
In 2016, we introduced Springboard Afterschool, which helped accelerate reading progress for 134 students at 3 sites. By Summer 2017, we had expanded to serve 1,000+ students at 10 sites. We serve the East and West Oakland school OUSD.

Through a partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District, Springboard launched in San Francisco in Summer 2017 as a single-site pilot in the Bayview neighborhood. Based on the pilot’s initial success —and boosted by a 5-year investment from San Francisco’s Department of Children, Youth and their Families—Springboard expanded to serve 960 scholars and their families across 8 elementary schools in Summer 2018. Springboard classrooms also act as training ground for new teachers from the district’s internal credentialing program; these new teachers support Springboard teachers with instruction.

Along with Oakland and San Francisco, San Jose offers Springboard an essential platform for making an impact across the Bay Area.

Springboard’s first push into the Central Valley landed us in Fresno Unified as the result of seed funding from Halloran Philanthropies and the Silver Giving Foundation. We specifically focused on under-performing African American students as part of the district’s achievement strategy for this subgroup.
In Summer 2018, Springboard served 210 students at one central hub school and provided technical assistance to middle school leaders who modified our curriculum and program structure to meet the literacy needs of 6th-8th graders. In partnership with district leaders, we be studied this program twist closely to gauge lessons learned that might later be applied to expand our program offerings to include middle-schoolers.

Based on our initial success, the district contracted with Springboard to facilitate Springboard Afterschool for 540 scholars across 10 school communities starting in early 2020.

“I look forward to seeing the workshops in action. I observed them in previous years and can’t imagine anything more impactful in our students’ literacy growth!”
“Springboard’s commitment to creating meaningful partnerships between home and school has led us to reimagine what family engagement looks like at [our school]. Our engagement with our parents – through conversations, conferences, family nights, and newsletters – now focuses on data and equipping our parents with the tools they need to support their students’ achievement at home.”
