IT TAKES A VILLAGE

Every child should have someone to help them unlock their potential but for an entire school, it takes a village.

Many children face a tidal wave of obstacles and are disconnected from those with the power to help. Systemic inequities, poverty, hunger, illiteracy and fragmented families isolate children, cutting them off from their vibrant futures. In the face of this challenge, what can we do? It's time to stand together!

OUR APPROACH

Love Our Schools facilitates the engagement between local leaders and School  Champions from across sectors where faith communities, business, government and community organizations can play a strategic role in supporting the health of their local schools.  We refer to this committed group of leaders  as a "village". These villages are foundational to whole student and whole school transformation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This village model is simple but counterintuitive to most institutions. While the same children and families are present in these different networks, they often work independently of one another and struggle to have enough resources individually to truly make an impact. 

For many schools, they lack the capacity and the resources to build sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships in their community. Love Our Schools provides a simple but powerful framework that helps build capacity while also building shared leadership and vision among community members. We know that when schools thrive, communities thrive!
