Webinar Time!

We’ve been doing our part to suppress the spread of COVID-19 and keep our communities safe. Since this has meant limiting outings, gatherings, and travel, ALC facilitators have had a super busy few months!

First we adapted our local programs to run in distributed, off-site formats, some of us coordinating and trading notes on different tools if we made the change at the same time.

Then we adapted our interALC collaboration to open virtual offerings and resources from 7+ ALCs to learners and facilitators across the network.

*Now* we’ve made you a webinar series! Facilitators from ALC-NYC, Abrome, Gastonia Freedom School, Heartwood ALC, and PDX Flying Squad are offering 10 weekly webinars with content we hope will support families adjusting to coronavirus closures of our centers and meetup spaces…as well as anyone else curious about how we do what we do!

Registration through Eventbrite. Events on Zoom, Sundays at 1 pm et.

*** Early in the pandemic, webinar hosts started discussing hosting a second round of these sessions in July or August. As the uprisings have started and spread (we’re all US-based), we find we’re yet again needing to re-assess our plans for the next few months. We’ll post updates here and on the ALC Network social media as we get clear on where our communities most need our energy in the coming weeks. ***
