The PTA 100% funds all Alive! Programs (Science, Garden, Art and Music) and the coordinators that keep them going.
This will be the first year that all positions will be in place and paid for the entire year. Paid coordinator positions have been essential to developing a sustainable model. Volunteers are always needed to make everything happen, but if a program is fully dependent on volunteers, it can often disappear if a critical volunteer leaves. The paid model has allowed us to continue these programs even with turnover.
VOLUNTEER! DONATE! SUSTAIN!
