Mighty Acorns® is much more than a curriculum; it is a partnership of dedicated education professionals. Partners are organizations that sponsor Mighty Acorns® in a particular geographic area. These could be public agencies, park districts, private organizations, or cultural institutions. Partners work with schools throughout the year to train teachers and volunteers, coordinate field trips, and plan stewardship activities. To learn more about the role of a partner, go to the Become a Partner page.
While each partner agency is responsible for administering their own program, The Mighty Acorns® Partnership does provide oversight to the program in general through a structure that includes a Board and Task Forces.
Partnership is voluntary and free. Partners sign an agreement to participate as either a General or Coordinating Partner. General Partners conduct Mighty Acorns programs but do not participate in the coordination of the partnership. Coordinating Partners serve on task forces and the board and make decisions that govern the partnership as a whole.
