Riverways Education Partnerships

Rural & Tribal Programs

Riverways Education Partnerships recruits students in a variety of programs that partner with our Rural and Tribal schools across Washington State. Telling Our Stories is our only year-long partnership focusing on mentoring 5th graders and our Alternative Spring Break (ASB) programs focus on curriculum building for a week-long program during the University of Washington’s Spring Break.
