"We need to see power as fuel for development, not restriction of growth. We need to see power that strengthens individuals and cultures simultaneously, rather than either one at the expense of the other." - Wheels of Life"
Equity + Equality :: two meaningful words .
Treating everyone as equal, I believe, will make great change in the world while assuring we each have what we need (equity) in order to be our best self and make a positive contribution to the world.
For eight years I taught at a public school in the Western Addition SF, making small incremental changes; relighting hope for those who stopped believing.
With a background in environmental studies, a knack for problem solving, a passion for the arts and social good, I am now working on a MBA in Design Strategy through California College of the Arts, gaining skills to make sustainable change on a larger scale.
Thanks for responding! I was under the impression that your organization would be providing services to the students, I didn't realize that parter organizations would provide the services. Have you considered social investment bonds? If at any time you are looking for non-profits to connect with, or are looking for an introduction, feel free to reach out :) firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for taking on such a challenging topic. As an educator and someone who has worked with multiple non-profits throughout the Bay Area, this issue is very real. There are many organizations who are offering this service who are also struggling to raise new funding. Have you considered being the "connector" for this concept? Providing a platform to the organizations that are doing this work and connecting them to the resources that will allow them to make a greater impact.
