As an answer to the devolution of modern education, American Family Education (AFE) has designed a program that truly supports families in achieving the education they desire. AFE has created a safe haven for families to gather and learn together despite the turmoil of current events. It has become imperative that we raise funds to continue our work. AFE has a self sufficient entrepreneurial model, but with the unforeseen current events, we need your help.
We need to fulfill our purchase agreement decades sooner than we had planned. Our intention has always been to own the acre lot at 1267 N Recker that we’ve used for the past 3 years, but we did not foresee the changes that have come over the last year. We are working to raise enough money to complete the purchase of our home to bless the lives of families in our community for many years to come.
The solution is to raise $550,000 this year with $20,000 in recurring maintenance donations. This will allow us to gain full ownership of our property and continue to hold classes, workshops, events, etc. for many years to come. Recurring donations will allow for many current and new projects on the property to bless local families, including a fully developed garden/orchard and new playgrounds.
Why American Family Education?
American Family Education (AFE) offers a unique solution to the education problems plaguing our world. Through connecting with parents, focusing on skills and maturity, and creating small local education centers, AFE is forging a path in alternative education. American Family Education support a process from parent-led to self-directed, purpose-driven, leadership education for the information age, building strong individuals, families, and communities. This a new educational system for all ages. Students learn, in a moral environment of purpose-driven, agency based education with the structure of a private school, including inspiring teachers and mentors. Students progress from learning to read and write through to being able to self-direct their own education and start their own businesses or careers. All the core subjects are learned through the lens of purpose. Learning is focused on tools to achieve vital strengths like logic and reason, communication, and discernment. Students progress based on maturity and mastery, NOT by age or time served.
In addition to foundational learning, our elective programs feature individuals that teach and inspire students in their community, based on their passions and expertise. Students experience opportunities within electives that engender the attributes, skills and experience that support the development of that student’s individual purpose and goals.
On sight we have started a food forest, and are working on developing it further to strengthen the skills and health of the families we serve.
AFE is always improving, like the members and students are encouraged to be. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your support may positively impact your tax liability, and it is guaranteed to bless the lives of families who are striving to raise their children to be positive contributors to our world.
