The heart of Partners is a "people-to-people" philosophy, which grew out of a 1962 call by President John F. Kennedy for citizens of the western hemisphere to work together. Inspired by the challenge, Jim Boren, one of our founders, envisioned a two-way network of volunteer partnerships that would enable everyday people to contribute to communities in the Americas.
