An Alternative With the Flexibility to
Meet All Your Child's Educational Needs.
At DRC, we understand that your kid may not be into school. Or - that school is no longer serving your child. We also recognize that you know they would thrive in the right environment. We trust that each young person will lead the way in working together to create that environment from scratch.

DRC-East currently rents, by day, this old church in North Lawrence that is also for sale. We want to purchase it and make it our own. In addition to being their learning facility, the student members envision making it into a community cultural and creative resource center. It will be a place to invite local people to participate in artistic and educational events, including guest speakers, live music events, and art shows.
At DRC, we fully support every child to express their gender identity freely in the safety of our environment.
Many kids experience body dysphoria and require chest binders to help alleviate that. This is the one item that needs to be specifically sized for each individual.
Therefore, we are starting a Binder Fund to be used to purchase Binders for each young person at DRC who requires one. As the Fund grows and we are able, we will offer this to the wider community, as well. If we can alleviate one source of trauma we will.
You can donate to the Binder Fund through the DRC Venmo account - @Whole-Learners and comment "binder fund."
We are taking the opportunity during these last few weeks of this academic year to spotlight the young people who make up our Communities - both in DRC-Canton and DRC-East. Click the button below to read about our awesome Peeps.
