This hands-on activity aims to:

  • increase participants' understanding of sustainable community schools as a strategy to achieve the schools all our children deserve;
  • build excitement and generate action steps to transform existing schools into sustainable community schools.

Everything you need is here. Click on the facilitator instructions, cut out the cards and backpack photo, and download the AROS handout, and you're ready to go. We hope this activity leads to great discussions about what all schools should be and what your group or coalition is going to do to get there. 

This activity was designed and produced by AISR, based on an activity developed by the New Settlement Apartments Parent Action Committee, Bronx, NewYork.
