Here at the School Factory, we've been hearing more and more great stories about youth getting involved with the Maker Movement at your spaces across the country. For me personally, this is really exciting news, as I believe great things can be acheived by getting young people involved with us "adults" (lol), as we can learn so much from one another and have a great time learning together.Read more
The February 8th deadline for required donation income & expense reporting is fast approaching, and I'm here to help however I can.
I have set up the following help sessions next week via Google Hangout, so please respond to the events to let me know if you will attend:
Our space is considering offering a discount to active military personnel and veterans.
Are other spaces doing this?
Are there any grants or assistance to help with this sort of thing? Either monetary support or just spreading the word through other organizations, etc.
More information about them can be found here: https://atrium.schoolfactory.org/spacefed/node/108113
Please join me in welcoming them aboard!

I'm wondering if other spaces insure the Board of Directors (assuming you have one!)
If so, what does that entail, and what are the typical costs involved.
(We're mainly concerned about protecting the individual Board Members in the case of any ligitgation.)
