Community Partnerships

Ben’s Bells is proud to work with Tucson Unified School District’s (TUSD) Community Transition Programs, a partnership that began in 2008!

Kind Stitches

Kind Stitches is a collaboration between Ben’s Bells and TUSD’s Community Transition Programs.

Thanks to support from AZ Vocational Rehabilitation and the Transition from School to Work model, young adult students with disabilities receive valuable job skills training while supporting Ben’s Bells and sharing the “be kind” message with our community – that’s win, win, win! TUSD students collect high quality recycled clothing and embroider the “be kind” flower on clothing and tote bags. Revenue from sales supports kindness education programming.

TUSD Advanced Community Training Program

Ben’s Bells is proud to work with volunteers in TUSD’s Advanced Community Training (ACT) program. In the ACT program, students engage in learning by volunteering, working, interacting with the public, and accessing the community on a full-time basis for up to two years. Under the supervision of ACT teachers, University of Arizona students provide instructional support to students within meaningful community environments. ACT students and staff have been volunteering in our Tucson studios since 2008.
