PENCIL is a non-profit organization that builds strategic partnerships between community groups and the needs of Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS).

We address needs through a collective impact model that harnesses the time and talents of the business community and PENCIL Partners to offer invaluable access to mentoring, job shadows, and more. We are committed more than ever to see that all our students have access to these opportunities.
