FALA Volunteer Corps
Our goal is to provide information and communication to further the education of our students. We are a group of parents, family members, alumni, and community leaders that are dedicated to supporting the Flagstaff Arts & Leadership Academy through volunteer endeavors. We are designed to support the efforts of the school Administration, Staff, and Teachers.
A Vision of the Future
The Advisory Counsel and other active members of our Volunteer Corps meet regularly to further our mission and goals. We host Open Houses, Volunteer Brainstorming sessions, and Organizational Retreats to invite anyone from our school to have a voice in our activities. Through our discussions we came up with three main goals or visions that we hope to attain over time.
Help the School: Our original and primary purpose has been to help the school be a better place. To take everything that the Administration, the Teachers, and the Students have been hard at work putting together, and enhance it. To bring support to programs and events already happening in the school, to bring our own social events and activities to the FALA family, and to safeguard our school through our organizational structure.
Create a Community: We all have communities whether they be clubs, groups, religious organizations, … Community building is all about having a place to feel welcome. This is a way that we can build on the social aspects of being a parent and alumni of FALA. To be involved in something that helps, while having lots of fun doing it.
Be Involved with our Kids: This is a crucial time to be a big part of the our kids’ lives. If we truly want them to succeed and talk with us about their successes and failures, then we need to be there. We, as a volunteer corps, can be a force to bring families together. Being involved in the activities of our kids, their education, and their activities, will bring us closer to them.
We, the FALA Volunteer Corps, are trying to build a future that has these elements. It’s not an easy task…! It’s something that takes all of our efforts to look at how we can help and step up to that task. It’s not enough to be asked to help, it’s more that we want to help. We want you to see how great the activities we are focusing can be, and come to us because you want to share in this endeavor. This is our vision… A time when our community meets these goals and makes them self-sustainable long into the future.
