OUR COOPERATIVE

WHAT IS A COOPERATIVE?

A cooperative is defined as a group working or acting together willingly for a common purpose or benefit. The families of Little Maroons all agree that the education and care of their children is paramount.

 

COOPERATIVE STRUCTURE

An Advisory Board comprised of members of the original families helps keep the mission and vision in tact.  The currently enrolled cooperative members/families have one vote per family. There are work shift commitments, committee work and community meetings required of all the currently enrolled families to maintain the cooperative nature of the school. Click here for more information on work shifts, committees and community meetings.

 

BENEFITS

As a cooperative, we provide and help build a network of families that are able to be a support system for each other while also directly contributing to the children’s education and livelihood through work shifts, committee work and community workshops.  We believe that revolutionary work begins with raising and teaching our children to have pride in themselves and their heritage.
