Partnerships are as old as biblical times. In Ecclesiastes 4:9, it is noted that, “two are better than one, because they have good reward for their toil.” Working diligently towards a common goal is what we strive to do with our partnerships. It is at the very core of our work at Cardinal Hayes. We are forming these partnerships every day with key stakeholders who help us advance the Cardinal Hayes mission.

These change agents allow us to move the needle so that our students can compete in the global marketplace as effective young leaders. Over the years, Hayes has partnered with PwC, The Hearst Corporation, Fordham University Mentoring Program, Student Sponsor Partners (SSP), The Opportunity Network (OppNet), Student Diplomacy Corp, and Inner City Scholarship Fund just to name a few. All of these institutional partners have created a pathway to success for many of our Hayesmen. They are essential to expanding our professional connection to the external world.

In life, success is often achieved through a collaborative effort. All parties involve must share the same value system to build a foundation rooted in hard work, faith, trust, and dedication. No one does it alone. That is why we honor the partners who walk with us in this journey we call life. We must continue to band together and give our best to the causes that matter the most. Every major movement in history whether it was Labor or Civil Rights, required partnerships that changed the playing field. It is imperative that we build and forge new alliances that create a better life for the next generation.
