Vancouver FreeSchool

Vancouver, BC

Mission Statement
The FreeSchool, an alternative education project in Vancouver, Canada, is a collective-run project whose purpose is to provide the community with a space for dialogue and learning outside of the mainstream education and economic systems. Volunteers from the community have come together to organize and facilitate a small selection of learning groups at no charge to their fellow community members. We all have knowledge and skills to share with one another, the FreeSchool is an opportunity to do so in a non-hierarchical, anti-oppressive and holistic education environment where not only the academic is addressed, but also the social, political, creative and personal.
