Helios Education Foundation believes that education changes lives and strengthens communities. As a result, we strategically partner and invest our knowledge, expertise, and resources to create opportunities for individuals in Arizona and Florida to succeed in postsecondary education. By fostering a college-going culture and advancing the academic preparedness of all students from early childhood through postsecondary education, Helios seeks to increase the number of young adults graduating from high school prepared to succeed in college, career, and life.
We are proud of our work and we are proud of each of you - our front-line, classroom teachers who tirelessly cultivate the potential of each student. Your dedication and investment of time, talent, and personal resources to ensure all students, regardless of zip code, receive a high-quality education is what makes our state education system a point of pride. From ensuring early learners are prepared with literary fluency to promoting postsecondary degree attainment as a pathway to prosperity, Florida’s teachers are worthy of celebration each day of the year.
If there is one vehicle that repeatedly yields a highly valuable return, it is education. More lucrative than a temporary bull market, an investment in the postsecondary education of all students, particularly first generation, minority and underrepresented students, will change the long-term composition of our communities - that is the hallmark of education, a hallmark that traces back to you.
