COF x NEW ROADS SCHOOL
18th January, 2022
Cotton On Foundation is excited to share the beginning of its first US-based partnership with New Roads School, a K-12 school based in Santa Monica, California.
Cotton On Foundation has maintained an ongoing connection with New Roads for some time, with a mutual belief in the importance of equity and opportunity in education.
“In an authentically diverse community, New Roads prepares young people for life by developing in them a personal dedication to learning, a respect for independent thinking, an expanding curiosity about the world and its people, and a commitment to the common good,” the school states in its Purpose.
Testament to their success, New Roads boasts impressive alumni, including writer and poet Amanda Gorman.
To advance their mission, New Roads endeavors to expand their reach well beyond its campus and build a national and global community who share their commitment to the common good. They are leading the way globally in creating schools that bring out the best in every child and have a positive impact on the world around them.
Cotton On Foundation is supporting New Roads in hosting a Critical Conversations virtual event this Friday 21st January at 12pm AEDT, to align with its ongoing commitment to the principles of belonging and equality. Tune in to hear from Van Jones on Educating to Rebuild the American Dream.
