Deep Root Center for Self-Directed Learning is registered in New York State as a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 tax exempt corporation, and does not receive any state or federal funding. DRC relies on member fees, grants, fundraising events, and individual donations to operate the Center and provide programming to our members.
Every student who is excited to take charge of their education is welcome here. The North Country is a beautiful place with a population who are deeply committed to helping each other; however, it is also a place where economic hardship and poverty are a common story. Many of the families who join Deep Root Center are not able to pay our full membership fee. Our Board is very proud to say, we have never refused a child, because of their families financial situation, we therefore provide significant scholarships to every child who needs it. With that in mind, the DRC Board is seeking people in the community, who are passionate about progressive, student - centered education, to step forward to invest in DRC and our talented student members through our next stages of growth.
Our Executive Director is available to meet with anyone in the community who is interested in supporting our mission. Please get in touch .
As always, thank you for your support.
