My Discovery Destination!
Supports Youth and Education
We're all about
Strengthening Families, Building Character, and Improving Lives . . .
Supporting our schools, PTAs and education
is a GREAT place to start!!
There are 5 main areas where we can create a major positive impact for your PTA:
Increase participation in the Reflections program
Help facilitate communication with parents
Educate the community about key issues like parenting, safety, and legislative updates
The Challenge: Many PTAs are looking for additional funding sources.
We have 2 Solutions!
Discovery Scavenger Hunts! This fun, new and unique fundraising option is a great way to engage families, create excitement, and allow flexibility in your fundraising efforts. Learn more about Discovery Hunts at http://MyDiscoveryDestination.com/hunt.
My Discovery Destination! can re-direct a portion of local businesses marketing dollars to the PTA with very little effort on the part of PTA.
2. Help Increase Membership in the PTA
The Challenge: PTA is experiencing a membership crisis! Many parents don’t understand why they should be a part of the parent group at their school.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can help increase membership numbers through
Education & Telling the PTA Story
Adding value to the PTA membership with Parent Perks
Working with our Adventure Partners to hold 'Come Play with PTA' membership Adventures
3. Help Increase Participation in the Reflections Program
The Challenge: Participation in the PTA Reflections program continues to drop every year.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can help increase participation in the Reflections program by
Promoting and educating about the benefits of the program
Posting reminders and notifications about deadlines
Working with our Adventure Partners to provide 'Reflections' Adventures that support and encourage participation
4. Help Facilitate Communication with Parents
The Challenge: PTAs tend to reach mostly parents on the PTA membership roster, or parents within the school. However, in order to grow it is important to reach ALL parents, grandparents, and community members where they already are hanging out.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can help facilitate communication through
Texting and the Seasons of Service app
5. Educate the Community About Key Issues
The Challenge: The PTA has a plethora of important information to share with parents, but the communication processes currently being used often do not reach the parents.
The Solution: My Discovery Destination! can help by providing bite-size bits of information on a regular basis to help parents learn about and understand the important issues and information that PTA can offer, and can help disseminate that information in a space where parents are watching.
