You’ve seen the headlines in the news about our education system in Arizona. Most recently, a report ranked Arizona the third-worst public education system nationwide. That’s not where we want to be, right? A similar report stated that Arizona was the worst place for teachers.
These headlines don’t have to become our norm. We can turn things around. Here are four reasons why we think you should join the Stand for Children family and help turn the tides in Arizona.
Join a team of committed community members
Often, it may feel like you’re alone in the fight to improve our schools. You may even be frustrated because it seems like every little bit of progress takes so much effort. But when you join the Stand Family, you’ll realize that you're not alone. There are community members just like you who want to make a real difference.
Develop your organization and advocacy skills
Strengthening our schools may feel like a daunting task. We’ll help you, whether you’ve ever organized events or brought together a group of people or not. What matters is your willingness to make a difference. So even if you’ve never organized before, there won't be a problem.
Make a difference in your community
We saved the best for last. The most rewarding part is that you can actually make a real difference in the lives of students across Arizona. One example of this in action is a 100 volunteer-led tutoring program our members launched. They had the courage to meet with school officials, and within a couple of months, they had hundreds of students volunteering and receiving tutoring.
As an Arizonan, we can work together and make amazing things happen. The question is: Are you ready? If you are, please fill out this form and join a growing family of advocates across the state: https://membership.stand.org/az/
