Partners in Education

The Partners in Education Program is a collective effort of the Cobb Chamber, the Cobb County Public School System and the Marietta City Public School System that matches businesses and organizations with schools to provide extra funding, unique services and volunteer support. The vision behind the Partners in Education Program is to enrich the learning experience of Cobb’s children so that all develop a strong academic foundation, skills and core values that will benefit them in their community life and in a career. 

Do you want to join the small and large businesses, civic groups and non-profits that are instrumental in providing Cobb schools with volunteers, equipment, supplies, scholarships, in-kind services and cash donations? Participation in the program provides opportunities for businesses to:

  • Heighten awareness of present and future job needs.
  • Understand the quality and needs of the public school systems, whose health is vital to the community's economic well-being.
  • Be recognized as a community involved company, which adds to public relations efforts.
  • Improve the education of future employees and customers


There is no financial investment associated with the program, but participants are asked to make a one-year commitment to engage in quarterly activities with their partner school.
