Take Our Survey, Please

FREESKOOL TSHIRTHey friends, the Freeskool wants to expand…like the universe, or something slightly smaller but still optimistic. We want to have better services and more options for our students and teachers. We are hoping to become an official non-profit. You can help by taking this survey! Have you ever been a teacher or attended a class? Great – we’re looking for you, where’ve you been?

Be a Freeskool Organizer!

Freeskool Oct-Dec 2014

Join the Freeskool Team!

Come be part of the behind-the-scenes of Freeskool. We’re looking for organizers to help find teachers, make art, distribute calendars and all the other Freeskool goings-on. Being part of the team means getting to know the community, learning programs like InDesign, making posters, being creative and radical. Come get a sense of what it’s all about. Can’t make the date? Get in touch and we can figure something out.

When: Sunday Nov 16th at 4pm

Bring a snack to share, if you can, and stay for a bit and get to know the teachers, organizers, and students that make the Ithaca Freeskool happen and happening. Share ideas and inspiration! Or just stop by to grab a *new* calendar (or a stack that you can distribute to all your friends and colleagues), and say “hi.”
All are welcome!
