The Center for Active Learning is a 501 (c) 3 organization based in Brooklyn, New York. We believe that a lack of resources should not equate to a lack of educational opportunities. Therefore, our mission is to provide educational experiences for adults that are enriching and informative at low to no cost.
LEARN something...just because.
When learning is fun, why do you need a reason? Film screenings, cooking classes, creative immersion projects...all fun and active ways to learn new things.
"Every person has capacities that, if realized, will contribute to the well-being of himself and of society. To achieve these potentials requires skills of many kinds—vocational, social, recreational, civic, artistic, and the like. It should be a goal of education to give each individual those skills necessary for him to make full use of his capacities." - Malcolm Knowles, Informal Adult Education, 1950.
Reach your goals. Achieve your dreams.
The Center for Active Learning facilitates a variety of educational workshops for entrepeneurs and and freelancers on a variety of topics. All workshops are founded in active learning methodologies. Active learning strategies encourage learner engagement, and afford the learner the opportunity to process information from their own cultural and experiential perspectives. When coupled with adult theoretical methods, such as dialogue, for example, the end result is very beneficial to the learner.
