Become a business problem provider for a District C's Teamship experience!

Our business partners represent all types of organizations from across industries - startups and large corporations, nonprofits and for profits, retail and high tech, and everything in between. The one commonality is that all of our partners believe in the following:

-We need to prepare our students differently for an economy that is rapidly changing, and the business community has an important role to play.

-Access to prepared talent is the single most important driver of success for the businesses and institutions at the heart of our communities.

-A diverse, equitable, and inclusive approach to talent development is not only the fair and ethical path forward, it's also good for business.

If this is you, we hope you’ll join us in this work.

Business partners provide real business problems that set the context for student work across our growing list of member schools. This means an opportunity to have diverse teams of students working on your problems. District C’s certified coaches are responsible for providing day-to-day support and guidance to the student teams, so your time commitment is limited to about five hours of authentic interaction with students across a number of weeks.
