We are currently seeking schools to implement 1st Saturday’s – the official monthly volunteer/recruitment day at their school sites by October 7th 2017.

Once registered, we will add your school to our map of places volunteers can go once a month to volunteer.
Do you like getting your hands dirty working on gardens? Would you enjoy planning and managing a farmers market in your community? Could you see yourself mentoring a group of high school Student Government Association members? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, consider joining us!
Our vision is called #Familyhood. The hashtag “#” represents the twitter handle twitter.com/familyhood to stay abreast.
We define #Familyhood as an inter-generational strategy that utilizes schools as a hub for community development.
#1stSaturdays (also can be followed at Twitter.com/1stsaturdays represents the 1st Saturday of each month to volunteer and recruit members to the schools three main school based organizations (SGA, PTA, AA).
#Familyhood is driven by two main motto’s: 1) The Friends of School motto: which states, ” every school shall have a functioning Student Government Association (SGA), Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and Alumni Association (AA). 2) The Mo’ Better Food motto: Which states, “every school shall have a garden, a farmers market and a grocery store.
The collaboration of the schools S.G.A + PTA + AA = Familyhood.
We are seeking schools to demonstrate #Familyhood in their community.
If you are a student, a parent, a principal , a community activist, a janitor, a receptionist, lol, it doesn’t really matter what you call yourself,
