Bay State Learning Center, a small nonprofit non-coercive self-directed learning center, is a different option for adolescents and teens to learn and grow. We have students from 10 to 18 years old. All of whom are excited to learn and dig deeper into subjects then public school allows them.

We are looking from someone who is interested in helping us run a, once a week hour long geography mapping class.

A great volunteer would be someone with a passion for the subject and an interest in teens. Someone who wants to add enrichment to adolescents lives. OR someone who would like to try a different type of teaching then many instructors are used to. No instructional experience necessary just excitement

We are flexable and love to add diversity to our students education so any type of time commitment you are open to could help. We would very much love a volunteer who could commit to teach at least 8 weeks or one semester, but even one time workshops add enrichment to our program.

THANKS!

Mission Statement

Bay State Learning Cooperative is a non-coercive learning environment for students ages 10-19. We do not have grades, tests, or specific curricular requirements. At Bay State Learning Center we think that the best and most lasting kind of learning is self-directed learning. At BSLC each student has the opportunity to work with a mentor to design a specialized learning program to fit his or her own needs, strengths, and interests. In addition to personalized support and a regular schedule of optional classes, BSLC provides a safe, comfortable environment where students can work, socialize, and thrive free of the coercion and pressure of traditional school.

Description

BSLC serves all kinds of students from successful straight A students who are bored or uninspired, to students who struggle with the imposed structure of school, to students who are disengaged and uninterested in standardized course work. Some want a better outlet for their creative ambitions and others have a specific area or discipline they want to focus on but find that the demands of school displace their interests. BSLC is for kids who need an open, flexible environment where they can find the security and freedom to succeed without irrelevant demands, arbitrary standardization, and institutional uniformity. Students like this can learn more and significantly improve their lives by leaving traditional school behind, and BSLC can provide them the opportunity to do so.
