I will hopefully be speaking to an organization called Families First later this week about a cooperation which may earn us a cheap, dedicated space in Poughkeepsie. They have a lot of space that the rent to other community-focused groups, and some rooms that they rent to members of the community for events. As part of this conversation, we will be discussing arrangements which could be beneficial to our organization and theirs.
Nothing is decided but some of the (very nebulous) things which we may be talking about may include some kind of mentorship program or other arrangement where we can provide demonstrations or workshops to some of the children they're helping out or help with some technical goals they may have. I won't obligate us as a whole or any individual to something without discussing it with a larger group but I'm interested in any ideas you folks might have for ways we could help a group like this.
Here's their 'about us' page:
I don't have much more information at the moment, other than the fact that their space is an old high-school building. Like I said, I won't obligate us to anything. I'll also try to cover practical, non-functional aspects of our potential cooperation (like insurance and liability concerns, whether or not we'd need a proper incorporation, etc) if the conversation gets that far.
So, what do you think? Any thoughts on what might get you excited about, interested in, or at the very least willing to work with this group?
