At Living School, our mission is to cultivate equity by nurturing students to do work that improves their lives, communities, and environment through holistic health, citizenship, and entrepreneurship. We started as a community organizing project in 2012 led by local students, families, and educators. Since then, our Design Team, Board, and Community have all been working tirelessly for the past 6 years to bring our vision to life. Our goal is that each student graduates with four things: 1) college acceptance, 2) career/technical certification, 3) a living-wage job offer and 4) habits of a holistically healthy life.
This summer, we're running all kinds of exciting pilot programs to engage families as we prepare to launch including school-design workshops with professional architects, an entrepreneurship summer camp in collaboration with a city council member, and a backpacking expedition that students are co-designing. We've raised half the money we need to get the doors open, and we'd be honored to have your contribution be part of the community of support we need to keep up the great work.
