About us

PENCIL is the premier organization linking community resources to Metro Nashville Public Schools. Thanks to dedicated PENCIL Partners, STUDENTS are in state-of-the-art laboratories, working alongside teachers and industry professionals. TEACHERS are designing lesson plans that cross the traditional boundaries of education - like linking data points in algebra with students' Agricultural Science classes. Dedicated VOLUNTEERS are regularly donating one lunch hour a week to helping a child improve his or her reading comprehension. BUSINESSES are creating an engaged and excited pipeline of students interested in their industry through internships and job shadowing.
