G.A.L.S. Business Goal for August: Get Approved for 501c3
G.A.L.S. are working our way through August, going through the process of amending our IRS 1023 paperwork to be approved for 501c3 tax exempt status. Each day we will work closer to getting to our monthly goal. Last week, G.A.L.S. started building upon each of our ten municipal education systems, one for each day. Day 1, we started with our College Prep Program. Day 2, we reviewed our Community Mentorship and Internship Program (a totally new community education system), Day 3, was assisting our Disadvantaged and Homeless in general education and job training skills. Day 4, we created a Cultural Arts Education Program that links all talent in a community to help preserve the local arts, culture, and traditions. Day 5, we started opening up the discussion around money and finances through a Financial Literacy Program Day 6, we will assist families in creating at home learning environments for the Homeschool and Home Tutoring Program. Day 7, we created a Military Education Program that will offer insight into the different military branches, services, and benefits. Today for Day 8, we will be teaching and learning from others in the community about our Mindfulness & Emotional Hygiene Education Program.
G.A.L.S. Teaching and Learning About Mindfulness & Emotional Hygiene
As we mentioned earlier, building our new community plan through municipal education is a way to connect everyone (anyone, any age, any time, any place) in the community with resources, education, and hands-on training by other members who specialize in different areas of business and trade. G.A.L.S. is an educational consulting team who will work with different communities by connecting, designing, building, partnering, and educating around local and global populations. Part of the online platform G.A.L.S. will include a space to teach the public how to learn about mindfulness and emotional hygiene. Our goal is to work with communities, churches, and mental health nonprofits to educate the public on various mindfulness and emotional hygiene strategies to improve health, education, and quality of life. G.A.L.S. will also be working closely with other mental health and education programs.
G.A.L.S. Goal for Day 8 – Mindfulness & Emotional Hygiene Education Program
Specific activities we will conduct – have space for mindfulness and emotional hygiene education services teaching about the different strategies to help improve overall health such as courses on: love, compassion, nonviolence, vulnerability, empathy, resilience, self-care, and meditation practices
Where the activities will be conducted – connecting through our online platform, communities will have educational consulting by our staff, and connecting with churches and mental health nonprofits, who will also plan for specific brick and mortar locations in the community to meet face to face
When or how often the activities occur – flexible dates and times will be created to support the community
How the activities further our exempt purpose – help in the advancement health, education, and quality of life
