FACET stands for Family And Community Engaged Teaching. We are a program on campus that focuses on integrating communities and schools.After time in program, some of the students decided to form a club to broaden the reach of FACET. They plan to work with different community partners, have discussions about the different facets within the educational system that effect students, and build relationships with people who believe in this vision.
It will be the purpose of the FACET Club is to bring together students who desire to work toward a more socially just and responsible teaching and human services workforce. As FACET Club we work together to build a community of care and support while considering and addressing issues of concern and importance in our communities and schools.
The reason we are fundraising is to help our club get started. We are fairly new, and we want to be able to provide food for our club meetings, do outreach with different community partners, contribute to Bellingham's community in various ways, and get the word out about our club and FACET in general.
