In 2008 Associated Services started the Classroom Scholarship Program with the goal of supporting Bay Area teachers who are teaching the kids of the Associated Services family. The program was inspired after a teacher approached an Associated employee for a small donation for her classroom. Over the years, it’s been expanded to teachers who are both connected and unconnected to people who work at Associated.
In the last ten years, Associated has provided over $100,000 of supplies, field trip funding, and other items to Bay Area teachers. We are proud that we’re making a difference for our local teachers and supporting them in their educational mission.
One of our most unique requests we have received was for 100 pumpkins to a local San Leandro School for the Kindergartners, which was an absolute blast.
2017 was our biggest year yet and we plan to continue our Classroom Scholarship Program for years to come.
