STAY (Supporting Together Area Youth) is a movement comprised of parents and neighbors who want to make Richmond’s local public schools thrive. We are a positive-minded, solution-oriented, action-based organization. We want you to be a part of STAY… STAY in the city, STAY committed, STAY open-minded, STAY willing to make a difference.
Richmond is a dynamic city with the energy and momentum to be a remarkable place that people call home. We want to encourage people to STAY, put down roots, and get involved in their community by coming together in support of local schools. In order to be a first class city we must provide a first class education for all students.

Through our collaboration with the schools, we are fortunate to witness truly inspiring students, staff and programs on a daily basis. We celebrate these stories and highlight the exciting and engaging projects and learning opportunities RPS students and staff are undertaking.
Erin Campbell is a kindergarten teacher at Chimborazo Elementary in Church Hill. Parents, administrators, other teachers and students truly ALL rave about Ms. Campbell
Here is what Erin says she loves most about teaching…
“What I love best about teaching are the chances I get everyday to turn challenges into opportunities for my young students! I have met some amazing kids and wonderful families in my teaching career. I am in a unique position, as a kindergarten teacher, in that I am able to get to know students at the beginning of their educational journeys and see them learn, grow, and flourish as they move through fifth grade! I love getting visits from former students who usually want to share a piece of their writing with me or recommend a favorite book to share with my kindergarteners!”
Keep coming back to check out our success spotlights. If someone in your area is working hard in their local school please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can hear about more of these positive stories and share them here!
