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. Day 9, we designed an Indigenous Language Arts Education Program. For the final Day 10, we are connecting our city, state, and federal parks to build an Outdoor Education Program.
G.A.L.S. Connecting Our Community Parks, Gardens, Trails, & Waterways
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 connecting our city, state, and federal parks, gardens, trails, and waterways to educate the public about native plants and animals in their surrounding areas. Our goal is to work with communities, government programs, schools, and nonprofits to educate the public on the history and natural resources of the area. G.A.L.S. will also be working closely with other education programs.
G.A.L.S. Goal for Day 10 – Outdoor Education Program
Specific activities we will conduct – have space to provide courses and hands-on/outdoor teaching about local historical background, native animals, native plants, and other natural resources of the surrounding community
Where the activities will be conducted – connecting through multiple locations such as: our online platform, parks, gardens, trails, waterways, and historical sites; communities will have educational consulting by our staff; also connecting with government programs, schools, and a variety of nature and historical 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 native plants, animals, other natural resources, and historical relevance
