The mission of the Saint John Free School is to facilitate the sharing of skills and knowledge while strengthening community and networks within Saint John. We hope to encourage discussion and action surrounding important issues and empower community members to make positive changes. We strive to be open & non-hierarchical in structure and accessible to everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, financial resources, academic background, etc. Although the Saint John Free School is starting out as a one-day event, it is our hope that we can foster a collective of engaged community members who will continue to build the free school project.
