QUINCY SCHOOL ~ COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP SPOTLIGHT: STATE STREET CORPORATION

Quincy Public Schools is fortunate to have State Street Corporation as one of its leading partners. Their involvement in the QSCP Partnership Pathways components of President’s Path, Site Support, Student Support, and Career Connections is one of the largest of all participating partners. State Street Corporation makes a generous financial contribution through their President’s Path Platinum Level Sponsorship. They are actively involved throughout the entire school community. The Junior Achievement initiative, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, and plan for their future, is made possible by State Street Corporation and is just one of many ways in which our classrooms and students are enriched with their support.

Annually, State Street Corporation participates in the Quincy School ~ Community Partnership “Credit for Life” Fair. This award-winning program was developed and designed by the Consumer Credit Counseling Service and the Credit Executives Association of Southeastern New England. Students from QHS and NQHS participate in this highly interactive one-day seminar designed to advise students on the basics of financial literacy and the role it plays throughout one’s financial life. State Street Corporation wholeheartedly supports this initiative both financially and with volunteer support.

In addition, State Street Corporation is the sole sponsor of QSCP ‘Tis the Season…Symphony and Song, a holiday musical and choral event featuring the renowned Quincy Symphony Orchestra, Quincy Public Schools John Adams Orchestra, and the Combined High School Choral Group. As a result of their participation, many students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend are able to enjoy the evening of musical enrichment. Additionally, during the holiday season, State Street Corporate Citizenship, through our Site Support initiative, provided QPS with complimentary tickets to a preview of the Boston Ballet’s New Nutcracker event being held this year on November 23. Tickets are distributed to students and their families within the school system.

Academically, within the Student Support initiative, State Street Corporation funds innovative ideas and technical grant applications for both North Quincy and Quincy High School which allows numerous QPS educators to enrich their classroom curriculum. A mentoring initiative with the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston at Montclair Elementary School, Parker Elementary School, and Atlantic Middle School further enhances the Student Support initiative. Internships, job shadowing, and employment opportunities are all part of the Career Connections contribution that State Street Corporation makes to the QPS high school environment.

Quincy School ~ Community Partnership is proud to be affiliated with State Street Corporation!
