What is Community Education?

We love learning from each other, being challenged, and putting skills into practice. We believe that education should be available to all. 

We are excited to launch this initiative to create spaces where we can learn, engage, and act together. Community Education will host pay-what-you-can workshops, courses, and events focused on creating community, thinking about what it means to be good humans and neighbours, and providing practical skills around advocacy and community action.

For now, we will start with a small number of  workshops. We hope to continue expanding and bringing in awesome people to facilitate all kinds of learning opportunities!

Any questions about Community Education can be directed to our Community Development Coordinator, Jenny Kennedy-Bloom at jkennedybloom@onecityptbo.ca
