A grassroots service for schools,
Ourschool is a subscription-based service that enables public high schools to grow supportive alumni networks. We work with school staff and alumni to inspire and support students through meaningful alumni engagement.
We build each school’s alumni network, co-ordinate alumni involvement with the school and embed a sustainable alumni culture across the school.
We provide the Ourschool program materials, processes and infrastructure to start and grow the school’s alumni program, based on methods and materials we’ve road-tested with schools in a successful two-and-a-half year pilot.
And once we’ve helped a school embed their alumni program, we offer ongoing support to our subscriber schools as they develop their program and grow their alumni networks.
80% of school students want study and career guidance from alumni*
Alumni can be invited back to their old school to share their experiences and insights about education and their jobs. They can provide work experience placements for current students or they may want to donate to a particular school project, leave a gift in their will, set up a student or teacher scholarship or volunteer in other ways.
Ourschool helps schools reach out to their alumni to make it easier for this
