PANDO INITIATIVE Defined
Pando (Latin for "to spread out") - Like the roots of a tree, we spread out into the community, gathering resources to support students as they achieve their full potential.
Connect. Engage. Thrive.
We connect with students to help them engage and thrive in education and their future.
Every student can thrive. When students are connected through relationships, they build strength, vitality and the courage to take the initiative.
The Pando Initiative has been successfully connecting with more than 200,000 students in area schools since 1990. Our core model focuses on individual students who are struggling with school and life. We position a dedicated staff member inside partner schools in Wichita, Derby and Haysville public schools.
