THE FUTURE IS HERE AND OUR KIDS NEED TO BE READY FOR IT... VOLUME 2
Welcome to 24/7 Education Group monthly newsletter. The purpose of this newsletter is to provide you with information about our programs, campaigns, and accomplishments from the previous month.
The big question that was asked of the executive team last month was, “what are we creating?” All of the answers were similar but had some subtle differences. For our organization to meet its maximum potential, we all must be in the same boat, rowing in the same direction, and speaking the same language. So I am going to answer that question and explain our vision.
What are we creating: THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE
OUR VISION: THE SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE
Our school of the future will be made up of:

A cohort of expert educators that are providing instruction and mentorship to students onsite and remotely in all of our Micro schools.
Pedagogy and Programming that will support onsite and remote students of multiple age groups to take ownership of their education and to:
Learn by Doing

SUPPORT OUR "GET A PRIVATE SCHOOL EDUCATION FOR A PUBLIC SCHOOL COST" SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS.
All students deserve to have access to the best educational experiences possible, but many don't. All donations small and large will pay for students to participate in our high school or entrepreneurship and leadership after school program which includes tutoring, test prep, entrepreneurship training, and leadership development for teens.
We are looking for volunteers who share our passion for education, technology, and equality. It is a 20-hour commitment per month initially and an opportunity to help ensure access to quality education for all, regardless of race, location, income, and access to technology.
Retired or inactive educators wanted to provide virtual mentorship to students (Can work remotely)
