San Lorenzo Valley (SLV) Charter School Booster Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps promote, support, and improve the diverse programs of The SLVUSD Charter School.  We are local families raising funds to sponsor educational enrichment programs to the students of five amazing alternative public education programs at SLVUSD Charter (K-12) school.

The schools use child–led education, helping children find and understand their passions, as well as offer a variety of classes and other educational and social opportunities. The Charter Family Booster Club raises money through local community events like bake sales. Money raised pays for classes in music, athletics, art, ceramics, science, history, dance, photography, funds theater productions, and field trips to museums and community events.

Within our charter are five wonderful local homeschool/in-class programs with the common goal of providing high quality alternative free public education to children. We have lofty goals for helping create the school of our dreams, but that takes funds.

With community support like this festival, we can make those dreams a reality. Our Charter Family Booster Club's mission is simple. We want to help create a school that meets the needs of diverse learners creating well rounded, well-educated individuals for a better future.
