I am pleased to be joining The Falmouth Institute as an Adjunct Faculty Member.
"In 1985, Falmouth Institute was founded to provide quality and comprehensive education and information services to the North American Indian community. Since then, we have dedicated our organizational strength toward assisting our clients in addressing the challenges posed by self-governance issues and policies developed by government agencies entrusted to assist Indian tribes. We are proud to have worked with nearly all of the Indian nations in the United States, meeting their complex, ever-changing educational needs and assisting them in refining or restructuring their organizations."
I will be working with Tribal professionals involved in their "Tribal Grant Writing Certification" program, teaching about non-federal grant writing (public and private foundations). I am thrilled to be part of the team!
FWEC is excited to be collaborating with two amazing southern Oregon organizations starting on October 1st. I actually started my grant writing back in 2002 with the Sugarloaf Community Assocaition, so this feels like a completion of a synchronistic circle! Building and renovation projects will include: driveway, bathroom, classrooms, irrigation system, fencing, permaculture plan, community center, solar power system, pond, and audio/visual systems.
New to FWEC is the Woodlands Charter School in Murphy, OR. The mission of the school is "to kindle a life-long love of learning by providing a developmentally appropriate, arts-integrated curriculum which engages the whole child: head, heart, and hands. Rich academics interwoven with human and nature studies foster a sense of belonging within the human community and a reverence for the beauty of the natural world. Our school will thrive with on-going family involvement and inspire the support of the greater community. Our nurturing learning environment will awaken each child’s thinking, creativity, and emotional sensibility." We will seeking funding for projects similar to the SCA's priorities. Welcome to both organizations!
I will be the Instructor for this training in May or June! Keep checking back for date and location.
