Yellowstone Academy is actively seeking corporate partners that would support Yellowstone through financial contributions as well as employee involvement, with volunteer opportunities to help supervise field trips, read to our younger students, help serve special lunches, and/or help with extracurricular activities such as athletics, cheer-leading, or Boy Scouts.
We believe that a combination of financial support and employee volunteer support from a corporate partner will promote the long-term objectives of Yellowstone and provide a positive “return on investment” for the company.
