Our Success Starts With Community

"I have been involved with the Pando Initiative since its early beginnings as Cities in Schools. I’m amazed at the organization's unwavering dedication to the students they serve. Kids are our future and Pando realizes that many of them need help with life roadblocks that keep them from thriving in school."   

-Tim Norton, Executive Director of the Kansas Aviation Museum and Board Member of The Pando Initiative
