Our vision is to inspire community partnerships that open a way for all children to learn, lead and serve to their full potential now and in the future.
To bring that vision to reality, we work to develop and support these partnerships between local organizations and our schools. The Bright Futures framework brings together businesses, human service agencies, faith-based organizations, parent groups and individuals in an effort to create lasting connections to help all kids succeed. Through this framework, we are committed to three main goals:
Create communication and resource structures to meet any child's basic needs within 24 hours.
Build community leadership capacity to improve problem solving capabilities to address the greater challenges faced by today's youth.
Provide service-learning opportunities to provide students and teachers curriculum-based, hands-on service experiences to grow generations of service-minded citizens.
By engaging our community, we can create a learning atmosphere that enables students and teachers to focus on education and achieving success. Bright Futures operates under the belief that when communities invest their time, talent, and treasure in their schools, students are more likely to stay in school through graduation, have a higher degree of self-worth and confidence, and set and reach goals for the future. In turn, these students grow up to be better neighbors, quality employees, and impactful leaders in our community.
As a Bright Futures community we commit to uphold the organizational core values. WE BELIEVE:
...in the inherent worth of every child.
...that every child's basic needs must be met in order for that child to be able to learn effectively.
...education is critical to success.
...every community has the resources to meet the needs of every child. These resources must simply be brought together.
...every child deserves a chance at success.
...that diversity should be celebrated.
...in the sanctity of the family unit.
...honesty and integrity are the key to maintaining purity of mission.
...all of us are better together than any one of us alone.
...And our actions reflect our beliefs!
