the project

Adopt-a-school programs have gained popularity nationwide as communities recognize the positive impact they can have on students and community members. By adopting a school that has historically been under-resourced, we believe we can make a meaningful contribution to the lives of students, teachers, families, caregivers and the community as a whole. This involvement supports education, fosters relationships, promotes community engagement, and enhances well-being by creating a nurturing environment where students feel valued and supported.

The activities will include a communal meal, art-making, journaling, culturally affirming self-care practices and  culminate with a community dance party where intergenerational teams of participants will work together to choreograph and lead a dance class with our community partner, Arts-In-Blue. Art work will be included in new wellness room for the school.

 This initiative can help in rebuilding resilience among students and educators, promote awareness around local mental health initiatives, integrate culturally reflective practices to strengthen learning opportunities, increase experiences of safety and deepen meaningful ways to engage the wider community. In this way, WRB hopes to play a crucial role in coalition building and expanding values-aligned collaborations to ensure a secure and supportive learning environment that promotes academic success and overall well-being for students and staff.
