Partnerships manager Tony Pitts establishes new and deepens current relationships with churches that are in alignment with the mission and vision of Jobs Partnership. Tony, who holds a degree in sociology from Wilberforce University, joined JP after spending 14 years as a high-school educator at The Master’s Academy in Oviedo.

When asked what motivated him to join the JP team, he replied, “I was motivated by the opportunity to help people live fulfilling lives. The chance to communicate to the underserved and marginalized – in real and practical ways – that they were created by the Creator on purpose for a purpose was too good to pass up!”

Tony has been married to his wife Akilah for 23 years and they have three children – Genesis, Joshua and Grace. They enjoy family vacations and dining at new and familiar restaurants, and they are HUGE basketball fans – Tony being doubly so when the University of Kentucky Wildcats are playing!
