Family Teacher Community

The Family Teacher Community welcomes you to the 2021-2022 school year! 

All Northern Light Parents and Caregivers are automatic members of the Family Teacher Community (FTC).  As an organization, The FTC partners with Northern Light School and is driven by a dedicated group of parents, alumni and caring community members invested in supporting the development of all NLS students. The FTC strives to complement the NLS curriculum through the creation and implementation of programming that expands opportunities and experiences.

Parent and Caregiver support via volunteerism expands the NLS experience while uplifting the available resources and expertise within the community. Volunteer service helps to nourish an engaged, vibrant, and caring community that everyone can benefit from.  It is our hope to cultivate deep exploration into building positive self-images as well as deconstruct any harmful narrative that doesn’t serve youth in achieving their highest aspirations.  The FTC aims to organize extra-curricular offerings that build on community expertise while supporting youth interests and goals. 

We are committed to educate, empower, and enact a culture of positive activism and support for people in our communities and around the world. It is our hope to plant seeds into NLS that will bloom in the world knowing that Impossible is Nothing, and that their dreams and thoughts can shape our collective future.

Regular FTC Meetings are scheduled each month and announced per the school calendar.
