We also have a specific interest in partnering with underprivileged and rural schools.
We book events up to one year in advance and usually give booking priority to returning groups wishing to hold the same date in the next year. At the end of each event we will provide the opportunity to re-book their event the next year. If a sponsor chooses not to re-book then the date will be made available.
Plan on booking six months to a year in advance to have the best chance of getting the date you are looking for.
It is our goal to continue serving both wealthy and underserved communities. This means we try very hard to keep our services affordable to everyone. One of the ways we do this is by not hiring additional help and regularly utilizing volunteers in each community to run events. As a result we aren't currently hiring and don't expect to be in the future, but thanks for asking.
Our quotes are made on an individual basis and change based on what type of service is requested and traveling distance. As a result here are some outside-the-box ideas to help you get the most for your money.
We do our best to share photos in a responsible way. While it doesn't happen every time we try to have parent's sign permission forms at events and avoid using photos if a parent is concerned with our use of their family members in photos or videos. Lower quality photos and videos not meant for downloading are sometimes shared in our albums or through other networks and formats.
Before sharing any photos or videos they are screened for individuals we know shouldn't be in them, modesty, appropriate language and gestures, unflattering images, etc. However, occasionally we make a mistake. If this is the case please simply contact us and let us know about your concern. We can promptly edit or remove shared material.
In general, downloadable photos and videos are shared via a private, password protected link unique to each school or event. If you would like this password please contact your school or event coordinator. You can contact us if you'd like to know who to reach out to with your request and we will forward it, but we don't directly provide passwords since we don't know individual community members.
