Joint Task Force North takes pride in its continuous efforts in the Fort Bliss Partners in Education program, which promotes the significance of volunteerism and community service to area students. The command partners with North Loop Elementary School in the Yselta Independent School District through mutually-supporting events that enable collaboration dedicated to inspiring student success, engaging community involvement and connecting mutual relationships.
The command’s relationship with North Loop Elementary School has been an outstanding example of the bond of commitment between the military and the El Paso community for more than a decade. The joint service members and civilian employees extend a friendly hand to students, teachers and staff by participating in school events as well as allowing the students to experience the service that JTF-N brings to the nation. Each year, JTF-N has supported the school by volunteering more than 300 hours towards numerous student activities including reading, mentoring and special events.
Our staff’s outstanding volunteer work is second to none. Each volunteer benefits from strengthening ties to the community, and through the continuation of the selfless service expected of them. Through Partners in Education, North Loop Elementary benefits from the increased staff assistance in activities to the steady interaction with adults who serve as role models and the positive influence the service members bestow on the students.
