#Friendsofschool represents The Friends of School Motto or the 1st motto of #Familyhood. Which states,” every school shall have a functioning Student Government Association, Parent Teacher Association and Alumni Association.”

We know that many school do not have these basic organizations functioning on school campus.
Our Program, #1stSaturdays is geared to assist you in the recruitment of members to these school- based organizations.

#1stSaturdays also promotes these organizations to go beyond just functioning. #1stSaturdays promotes them to collaborate.

This #FriendsofSchool page seeks to connect resources to schools that start, build upon these three main school based organizations. Hotep!
