Helena Poleo, Vice President of Influence Communications, has joined the board of The Education Fund, whose mission is to provide private sector leadership and support for innovation in public education. Over 30 years, The Education Fund has raised more than $46 million for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
” The team at Influence Communications feels passionately about giving back to our community. I am honored to serve on the board of The Education Fund and make a difference in a subject so near to my heart such as education in our public schools,” said Poleo.
Founded in 1985 with a grant from the Ford Foundation, The Education Fund acts on the belief that the health of Miami-Dade County begins with the quality of its public schools. By preparing and inspiring public school leaders and teachers, we impact student achievement and parent participation. By maximizing student potential, particularly for children living in poverty, we raise hopes and improve families’ futures. Our initiatives leverage private-sector investments and galvanize awareness of critical issues in public education. Our mission is to maximize students’ potential, ensure they each graduate, and provide each one with opportunities for success. Our programs benefit all schools, teachers and students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
