Welcome to the page that outlines everything that you need to know to participate as an ALF. It can seem overwhelming trying to keep connected and understand what’s going on in the ALF network…It’s okay, embrace the chaos! Then take a look at this guide to help you get oriented.

If you have any suggestions for making this page better, send them over to support@alc.network or post them at #support on Slack!

Logos & Brand Assets

ALC offers a bunch of branding that you and your learning center can work with. If you use Adobe products you can use this ALC library which contains brand colors and logos.

Get Brand Assets

This link will take you to our branding folder in our shared Google Drive. Here you will find logos, fonts, and other graphics for web (.png) and for print (.svg & .eps).

You can learn more about how to use the logo and branding by checking out our Brand Guidelines page. It has everything you’ll need!

This is where our network chats in real time. On our Slack team we have channels for #support or #random discussion.

Getting Started with Slack

Slack is pretty free form. New members are added automatically to a few basic channels. Once you’re comfortable in those, or if you’re looking for something more, you can click Channels in your sidebar to peruse the offerings available.

Don’t see the topic or language you’re looking for? Click the + icon next to Channels to create a new channel! Just don’t forget to throw the news in #announcements so folks know to join.

Keep up with things going on around the network by joining #z-feed channels. There’s not much discussion in these, but they’ll show you who near you is downloading the Starter Kit or when Support forms come in from potential collaborators.

Here’s a blog post Drew wrote a few years ago about how to use Slack

ALF Calendar

The shared Calendar below is for InterALC events. Add events you want other ALFs to know about! You can always find the calendar on this website at:


Conflict Resolution

Conflicts: opportunities for change and growth. We tend to use the same process among ourselves as we use in many of our schools. Here are the steps:

  1. Start by using direct communication. Approach the other person and attempt to talk things out.
  2. If that doesn’t settle the situation, enroll the help of a peer to support your next attempt to talk things out.
  3. If the problem persists, call a “Culture Committee” for mediation by enrolling multiple peers or filling out the Virtual Culture Committee Form.


Content below this point reflects practices that fell out of use in 2016. Having spent the years since then working on a cultural reset and upgrades that consider our increased time-zone//linguistic diversity, we’re looking forward to testing new tools and practices through 2020.
