STAY RVA is a movement to Support Together Area Youth. We want to do this by establishing positive, solution-oriented relationships with key stakeholders. This means we are working with the schools to help communicate, support and expand upon the great things they are doing for our youth. We are also working with Richmond Public Schools directly and non-profits in the area to build upon their successes and come together to support this mission of helping our public schools thrive.
We want people to STAY in the city, STAY open-minded, STAY solution-focused, and STAY action-oriented about the schools in their neighborhood.
Look at the students, staff and the schools and ask yourself how do their needs match up with your talents. We want all community members to be a part of their local school communities. We will send out newsletters and emails letting you know about specific events in your community that you can attend to show your support for our schools. We want to bring the vast amount of skills and expertise that we each have into the schools to create an education system where all ideas are welcome and where the possibilities are limitless.
