This newsletter issue asserts that sound, effective relationships in which diverse groups of people and organizations work together toward a common goal are the basis of the collaborative efforts in education that can accomplish change. The first article, "Partners: Forging Strong Relationships" (Sarah E. Torian), briefly describes the efforts of the "Volunteer Muskegon" tutors in Muskegon, Michigan and the Georgia Mutual Assistance Association Consortium as examples of effective collaborative programs. Other articles are: "Service-Learning Resources" (Amy Blake); "Lessons from the Field: Projects Learn with Their Partners" (Gale Greenlee); "Seniors for Schools in Massachusetts" (Sarah E. Torian); "How Can Service-Learning Strengthen Tutoring Partnerships?"; and "How's Our Program Doing? A Self-Assessment Tool Designed for Use by All Program Stakeholders." (EV)
