I posted awhile ago that when I turn 50 my goal was to buy a ridiculously impractical car that goes fast from the Barrett-Jackson auction. Just for fun. Then I posted about opening an after school center. Well, I woke up this morning with the the idea that I need to start working on my after school center NOW. I have no money, no "place" to put it, and am working out the technicalities like licensing requirements if any, grants/funding, how a non-profit 501 (c) 3 is set up, what programs (vocational/safety/health/tutoring...) to offer, how to recruit volunteers, my goals/objectives (mission statement), and anything else that keeps popping into my head. I want to serve high school students for sure, and middle school students if I can (licensing stuff...). So, if any of you know anything about what I want to do, please share. If you are in my area and know of land/buildings to lease/rent or some wealthy older people who want to donate and have the center named after them (I'm totally serious about that- you never know unless you ask) let me know.
Pictures and info about the fam to come later.
