Become a Partner

Resilience Education is pleased to partner with you to bring our programs to your community. We believe our focus on business skills and entrepreneurship – dynamic case method instruction – delivered by MBA student volunteer faculty and working with state departments of corrections and their facilities – is a powerful combination. The impact on our participants is real and the rewards for our faculty and partner organizations equally compelling.

“This program has been the highlight of my time here at Darden. I originally joined because I wanted to give back to the local community, but after going through the last couple months I realize it has been an experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. This experience has opened my eyes to the potential people have when they truly commit to turning their lives around.”
— Mark Lund Darden MBA Class of 2012

We are looking for partners to expand our reach and impact more communities in need. Here’s how you can join our efforts:

MBA Students & Alumni – If you are in an MBA program (or an alumnus) and are interested in learning to teach the case method and offering your skills to underserved students in your area, contact us. It only takes a few people to make a significant difference. Our programs are easy to deliver and we’ll teach you everything you need to know. We can work with you to find the best audience for our programming and will be there to ensure the impact you want to make can be achieved.

Schools of Business – Contact us if you’d like to learn more about how we got started at Darden. Make Resilience Education a part of how you make a difference in your community and watch your students, faculty and alumni become engaged in the important work of developing future entrepreneurs and giving people second chances. We can work with you to find partner organizations so you can have a lasting impact on those who cannot afford to attend your program but are eager to learn.

State Departments of Corrections – Let Resilience Education join your reentry initiative. Our programs focus on tangible skills that help ex-offenders obtain employment and remain productive contributors to our economy. Our work in Virginia has benefited from strong support from our Department of Corrections. Contact us to find out how we can assist your programs.

Correctional Facilities – Education is essential in the corrections environment. We know you have many opportunities for programming. Contact us if you are interested in bringing our unique courses and approach to your facility.

Non-profit Organizations & Supports – If you are working with underserved populations and share our conviction that they need new opportunities and deserve second chances, let us know how we can support your efforts. We look forward to finding ways to collaborate to impact more individuals in need, more rapidly, and most effectively.

We look forward to having the opportunity to work with you and your community.
