Our vision is called #Familyhood. #Familyhood is a community development strategy written by David N. Roach, which defines schools as the center for community development. #Familyhood attempts to create a inter-generational network that increases stability from the people up!
#Familyhood is driven by two main motto’s: 1) “Every school shall have a functioning Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association and Alumni” and 2) “Every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and grocery store.”
In short, #Familyhood is the collaboration of motto #1 organizations. The math formula is SGA+PTA+ALUMNI= #Familyhood. These organizations work together with community partners to operate the school based, food related enterprises, i.e. garden, farmers market and grocery store, as hands-on student projects with supervision from their PTA and Alumni.”
