- This year's team was made up of 22% men and 78% women. At the same time, we have a nearly even split of girls and boys in our program who are looking up to our teachers and advisors. We need just eleven or twelve more men to have a 50-50 split of leadership that reflects the makeup of our children. All our children, but especially our boys, benefit from having men in their classrooms. Could you be one of the eleven?
- 26% of our teachers and advisors do not have children at all or have adult children. An additional 7% of those teaching our younger children no longer have young children in their homes. That's 33% of our teachers! It is a misnomer that teaching and advising is for parents. Our kids need a range of people, of all ages, to help them grow.
- 35% of our teaching and advising team members this year have never taught before or have not taught for many years. There are many folks willing to take a risk and try teaching and advising, and our teams are very novice-friendly. We hope you too will join the crowd. You are needed.
