LYNX partnerships vary, but there are some general expectations of business and community partners. The main expectation of all partners is the ability to interact with and impart career-based knowledge to high school students.

Partners should be able to discuss their chosen career and provide advice to students to help them identify whether a specific career would be a good option for them.

Partners work with LYNX students during the school year, though the exact time commitment depends on partner interest and availability.
