Facebook Community Group Open

by Dothan Education Foundation

Community organizations and businesses who are interested in connecting with schools should join the new DEF facebook community group: DEF Grant Community Network. Through this new online community, educators who are working to submit project proposals can go online, get tips and connect with community organizations and business or industry partners who want to help in areas of STEM, Reading, Arts, Social/Emotional (Early Education) and Workforce Essential Skills. We are encouraging teachers and principals who are submitting applications to work with community partners to leverage resources and build lasting relationships for education!

This group is for community organizations and business/industry partners only. We ask that those interested in working with our grantees provide your information and how you are willing to collaborate and let the applicant reach out to you directly. Grant applications will open August 20th for teachers and principals. If you are an individual looking to volunteer, please contact us at office@dothaneducationfoundation.org

Examples may include: 

                  • A business that would like to connect to create a mentor program
                  • Development of a speaker series with an industry for job readiness
                  • A business that creates a product that a classroom can use for STEM curriculum
                  • An organization that would like to supplement a reading program
                  • An organization or business that would like to help connect with a school or classroom for after school tutoring
                  • An organization or business that would like to help connect with a school or classroom for financial literacy
