For the past four years, Tools for Change has been bringing together high school students from the Town of Rye’s 3 public high schools to learn to how to use college level research methods to solve community problems.
The Tools program is now in transition. Tools has always been a public/private partnership. In the past Tools has received financial support from the town and county governments, foundations, individuals (as well as in kind support from our school districts, local businesses and many community organizations). The future of the program in the Town of Rye is in doubt, particularly, because the town government, which has generously supported the program over the years, is facing financial challenges of its own. This challenge will, quite understandably, make it impossible for the town to contribute to the seminar. Thus, we very much need your financial support so that we can continue and perhaps expand the program to meet demand.
