Fund the Agile Learning Center's spring!
We believe self-directed education is liberating and nurturing and creativity supporting and should be as accessible as we can make it in our communities. One way we do this is by offering financial aid for +90% of enrolled families at our East Harlem flagship space! Since 2013, we've made this work...running fundraising events whenever we get in a tight spot. We've known for a few months we'd need to fundraise extra seriously this spring -- but with Coronavirus spreading in and beyond NYC, hosting big events feels irresponsible.
SO! We're taking our fundraising efforts online, asking folks to contribute to this crowdfunding campaign with a goal that's less than a single student's tuition for the whole year at many other private schools in NYC :) If we can fund the spring this way, our facilitators will get to focus on *facilitating* and folks who would normally be focused on event-planning can make all kinds of zines and blogs and webinars and better-edited-videos-than-this-one to gift the world instead. (If we exceed our goal and fund the summer, too, we could even get a book manuscript together!)
And the offer to send nifty tchotchkes from the makerspace is sincere! Use the contact form at nycagile.org to let Abby know where to post your gratitude goodies to.
