Remake Learning Days Across America 2020

Regional Lead Request for Proposal 

Thank you for your interest in participating as a regional lead in Remake Learning Days Across America 2020. Remake Learning Days began in southwestern Pennsylvania in 2016 as a learning festival for local students, families, and caregivers to experience innovative, hands-on learning. In 2019, Remake Learning Days took root in nine regions across the nation, officially launching Remake Learning Days Across America (RLDAA).

In 2019, RLDAA’s inaugural year, over 850 events took place in nine regional festivals across the country. Regional leads partnered with local organizations – like schools, museums, parks, libraries, after school programs, child care centers, universities, media centers, and more – to host hands-on learning events across a variety of themes.

In 2020, RLDAA will build on this successful model by inviting cities and regions across the country to host their own family-friendly festival focused on the future of learning.

Through a network of national festivals, RLDAA is working to:

  • Engage youth in grades Pre-K through 12, and their parents, families, and caregivers in the future of learning in their own communities;
  • Strengthen connections between youth, families, and community spaces like libraries, museums, parks, schools, family support centers, and others;
  • Build and strengthen local educational/learning networks within host communities; and
  • Demonstrate the presence and power of innovative learning within host communities, particularly for community leadership, including local legislators.

RLDAA regional leads will help further these goals in their city, region, or community.

As such, RFP applicants should be prepared to:

  • Coordinate a RLDAA festival in their city or region between the days of April 23 – May 23, 2020;
  • Take responsibility for regional fundraising, engaging event hosts and partners, event evaluation, and marketing/PR;
  • Understand roles of RLDAA contributors that come together to create an engaging festival in your region and across the country;
  • Center their festival on diverse, equitable, and inclusive future-focused learning; 
  • Actively engage youth, parents, families, and caregivers in their region; and
  • Be part of a national cohort of other RLDAA regional leads, which will allow you access to and use of a world-class RLDAA website, technical assistance, marketing/PR support, and evaluation and financial assistance. 

Through partnership with regional leads, RLDAA looks forward to another engaging spring of multi-region, innovative learning festivals in 2020.
