G.A.L.S. Business Goal for August: Get Approved for 501c3
G.A.L.S. are more than halfway 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 the 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 Education 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 programs. Day 8, we talked about opening up our Mindfulness & Emotional Hygiene Education Program. Today on Day 9, we will design an Indigenous Language Arts Education Program.
G.A.L.S. Teaching, Learning, and Preserving Our Local Indigenous Languages
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 about local indigenous languages. Our goal is to work with communities, schools, and Native American nonprofits to educate the public on local indigenous language skills to improve advancement of education and help preserve our native tongues. G.A.L.S. will also be working closely with other Native American and education programs.
G.A.L.S. Goal for Day 9 – Indigenous Language Arts Education Program
Specific activities we will conduct – have space to provide courses teaching about local indigenous language skills in reading, writing, and speaking
Where the activities will be conducted – connecting through our online platform, communities will have educational consulting by our staff, connecting with schools and Native American 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 of education and preservation of North American indigenous languages
