The Ducere Group is a non-profit organization of families, educators, services providers, and concerned citizens who are dedicated to advancing the quality of life of those within our local community through improvements in education, advocacy, and support services.
We believe that:
ALL children have a constitutional right to receive a high quality public education that is both free and appropriately engaging, delivered in an environment that teaches honor and recognition for all diversity.
ALL children, regardless of diversity, have a basic human right to be integrated into fully inclusive communities.
The Ducere Group is created to provide supports for educationally at risk youth via programs like charter schools, summer camps, advocacy, and community supports for educationally at risk youth. Through our annual summer camp "One Small Change", we empower children of all ability levels in a sensory friendly and fun environment. Through our emerging Charter School, "The Village Academy," we engage students of all learning styles through a variety of teaching methods including auditory, visual, and hands-on projects. We provide quality experiences for students, families, teachers, and communities and use collaboration with family and community resources to make learning all it can and should be.
