Find Out About ScoutMaker Program
Hi Everyone, I have been working with the Long Beach BSA to pilot a program that combines Scouting and the Maker Movement. At this phase it is an elementary school level program, implemented at two locations. I am hoping to also present the ScoutMaker program at the Long Beach Sea Base. We are partnering with an existing pack, which is managed at the Council level. This pack also serves a homeless families group and several low income schools in Long Beach. I think what we would be creating is a number of dens that roll into the same pack. I imagine if we do service outreach, it will include outreach to those who need it. For the Maker portion, I am creating an infrastructure that ties in with the other scout units I run. This is the Club Ten Middle School Career Exploring Group and the High Values Business Career Exploring Group. The inclusion of the Maker program is non traditional but the scouting program will be traditional in a non traditional pack. If you are interested, please respond to this meetup and I will schedule a day when we can discuss our personal Maker priorities. This parent-participation is a fee-based program open to boys and girls from Kindergarden to 5th grade.

    Welcome to Great Educational Experiences (GEE!)

    Great Educational Experiences is for homeschoolers who want a safe, fun, and great learning experience for their homeschooled children. My wife and I have put together classes that we feel are exceptional learning opportunities for homeschoolers. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with many years of experience in the non-profit sector, I have created and directed many programs. Over time, I have developed a real skill of bringing together awesome teachers to empower children.

    This group will be a place for people to find out about and sign up for these classes. Currently we are offering Art, Science, Writing, Spanish, and more! If you have a great idea for a class or know a great teacher, we want to talk to them.

    Our goal for the group is that we are able to provide the homeschooling community with Great Educational Experiences in a fun learning environment. My intention is to provide unique and interesting learning experiences that may not be offered anywhere else. My hope is to help the families and caretakers of children provide quality in-depth education in an engaging way.

    Wishing you and your family much health, happiness, and joy in your homeschooling adventure!

    Hope to see you soon,
