Free Minds Partners with the Austin Can! Academy
If you come to visit a Free Minds class this year, you’ll find us set up on Rosewood Avenue at the Austin Can! Academy. Austin Can! has opened its doors to Free Minds, offering us a seminar space for our adult class as well as a classroom and outdoor space for the Camp Fire USA program for children.
Austin Can! is a charter high school whose mission is “to provide a second chance for at-risk youth and their families to achieve economic independence and hope for a better life through relationship-based education and training.” Its students complete their high school education and receive support to help them transition to college. Austin Can! is also a learning environment where the larger community is welcomed and valued. “Austin Can! Academy is committed to partnering with community organizations, especially those of such high quality as Free Minds,” says Principal Dr. Joe E. Gonzalez.
Free Minds is excited about this new partnership and grateful to the administration and staff at Austin Can! who made it possible.
