As we finish up this academic year and look towards next year, I wanted to let you know that we have some extraordinarily exciting projects on the horizon.
I can’t give anything away right now – but, these will both build Deep Root Center’s capacity as well as the scope of our programming. We will accomplish all of this while maintaining our original mission to provide a facility, resources, support, and safe environment for all those young people who dream of creating an education around their interests and passions – outside of school.
Over the next few weeks and months we will share details. These changes, as you can imagine, will come at a significant financial cost. The staff and board are committed to keeping our promise to never refuse a child because of their family’s financial situation; therefore, we will be reaching out in various ways to ask for your support.
We are deeply grateful for our generous community who has supported Deep Root Center for the past four years. We look to you, as well as new folks who are just learning about DRC and all the services we provide those young people in St Lawrence County who rely on us.
You can help as these projects move forward by setting up a recurring monthly or one-time donationhere. The DRC Board is also seeking individuals who would like to contribute larger amounts to start an endowment towards our future. Please get in touch with us to begin the conversation on how your fiscal support can help us quite literally change lives.
Russ, the master syrup maker, is helping Noah finish off a batch.
Join us Deep Root Center accepts student members throughout the year; however, most of our students join during the late spring and summer months. If you are looking for a different kind of education – one that encourages independence, authenticity, flexibility, autonomy, collaboration, and fun - Deep Root Center offers all that and more.. You too can be part of this exciting adventure we call life-learning. Don’t settle for a standard education – at DRC you have the opportunity to design your own education around the things you love most. Slide on over to www.deeprootcenter.org, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us 315-714-4032. You can also message us through our facebook page. We look forward to meeting you.
PS There will not be a Blog Post next week. I will be at the AEROx conference in Bethel CT with four students!
