Support Freeskool by Bringing Your Own Bag to Greenstar!

Support Freeskool by bringing your own bag to Greenstar! So easy…just bring your own bag when you shop, grab a wooden token and drop it into the Freeskool box on your way out. And then you’re on your way to that free French class, right? Merci! You rock, and we get funds to print more calendars of classes.

Yes, Freeskool greenstartoekenshas been chosen as one of the non-profits for Greenstar’s “Bring Your Own Bag, Use it For Good” program January-March. This program is designed to encourage shoppers to reuse bags by providing them with wooden tokens worth 5 cents to donate to a local non-profit for each bag they reuse when they shop at GreenStar.

Teach for Freeskool Summer

The Ithaca Freeskool is accepting class submissions for our June – August 2015 semester. There are a billion reasons to teach. Here are a few of them:

  • Meet your community, make sweet friends!
  • Share your skills with people – you like to share.
  • Try out a hobby with a group of others. Way less boring, more motivation.
  • Test out your teacher self. When you teach, you learn.
  • Make time to do the things you love.
  • Empower the community. You don’t have to be an expert. We’ve all got something valuable to give.
  • Freeskool is cool. Even though it has a “k” in it. You need to be cool, right?
