The Quaker Advisory Council is a group of Quaker leaders who recognize the positive impact that a quality, early childhood experience can have on a child’s future and are committed to addressing the need for high-quality early childhood education. Members of the Quaker Advisory Council act as advisors to Friends Center about aspects unique to Friends Schools. As ambassadors and advocates they provide connections to individuals and institutions, opportunities for collaboration, and access to funding. The Quaker Advisory Council serves the critical function of expanding Friends Center’s impact and presence in the Quaker community.
Central to the mission of Friends education is the expectation that Friends Schools will provide an academically sound education in a values-centered learning environment that is rooted in the faith and practice of Quakerism. (Cary)
