Leadership and Governance Planning Committee


Our team is preparing to grow our work from a school into a movement! We are forming a Committee to make strategic recommendations about the nonprofit and organizational structure of our school and our future projects. This page has been created for official information and updates on the formation and work of the Leadership and Governance Planning Committee. Make sure to join the Commitee’s Remind group for updates and information and return for the final recommendations of the Committee in November.
