New Features to Jackson Hewitt Partnership

The partnership between StreetSchool Network and Jackson Hewitt has been expanded to include several new aspects. "We are delighted to see Jackson Hewitt's commitment to our students and schools. They are demonstrating that they understand the magnitude of the drop-out crisis and are willing to help move our students toward self-sufficiency and employment." according to Executive Vice President, Wendy Piersee.

Jackson Hewitt's expanded efforts include tax school scholarships for StreetSchool Network students, grants to help fund basketball programs at member schools to help reach the group at highest risk for not completing their education, and inclusion in Jackson Hewitt's national Lend-A-Hand Coupon program that will raise money for participating schools based on the number of coupons redeemed.
