Though we are living through unprecedented times, our passion and commitment to build a great school is undeterred. In some ways, COVID-19 has created the space for educators to have room for important conversations and innovations. COVID-19 has forced educational systems to rethink everything from school schedules, curriculum, attendance, and even school lunch. Concurrently Alma Fuerte is now the sole renter on the Edison campus which means we are expanding and taking ownership of the beautification of our campus!
We want to use this opportunity to create a space that excites students to return to school and fulfill our mission. We are in the process of making a Maker-Space or "Entrepreneurial Lab," for our students! This space will provide our students with tools to test, launch, and iterate their ideas during and after school. We hope that this sounds exciting and that you want to be a part of creating this space for students!
The Alma Fuerte Board is composed of volunteers who help shape the future of Alma Fuerte. Our board is stacked with educational leaders with a lot of experience. We are looking to add leaders with with a fundraising background, passion for our mission, and strong partnership building skills. Our ideal candidates are in the Pasadena area.
Time Commitment: Only 3hrs/ month for board meetings plus time for fundraising/ grant writing as you see fit.
