Join a thriving and passionate non-profit board supporting alternative education. See the education center grow and know you had a part in it.

Bay State Learning Center is looking for board members, people who want to help fundraise, build the brand, and/or help us dream. Reply to this posting to let us know you're interested and we'll send you an invite to our next meeting. You don't have to commit at that meeting but we're guessing once you meet everyone and understand our mission you'll want to sign up.

BSLC is a child-centered learning center for students aged 10-19 located in Dedham, MA. In addition to personalized support and a regular schedule of optional classes, we provide a safe, comfortable environment where students can work, socialize, and thrive free of the coercion and pressure of traditional school.

Ideally, a board member would be someone with an interest in alternative education styles and a fairly broad set of skills that could include, fundraising connections, growth and development advice/help, and/or an aiding check on running the business.

Board members meet once a quarter (Typically the first Saturday of the month), ideally, commit to at least a 3-year term, make a once-a-year donation of your choice, and sit on a committee of your choosing.

If you are interested in applying to join the BSLC Board, please email us a short introduction to information@baystatelearning.org or sign up via the volunteer match website.

Thank you from the BSLC team.

About Bay State Learning Center

Location:

45 Bullard Street, Dedham, MA 02026, US

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.
