P.K. Yonge seeks to connect researchers, teachers, and educational organizations, with a view to address questions that arise in education today. Partnerships are designed to positively impact student outcomes, student experience, and opportunities beyond secondary education, by challenging us to think, analyze, and act.

Existing partnership foci range from literacy, inquiry-based science, and social-emotional learning, to robotics, computer science, and interior design.
