Liberated Learners is a network supporting the creation of centers based on the North Star model. There are centers across North America using the North Star model to support young people living and learning without school, with more in development and planning to open in 2019.
Liberated Learners offers consulting and training to groups interested in creating new centers, and organizes the network of independent programs sharing this approach. We work together in the areas of outreach, fundraising, and providing learning opportunities to their members.
