Ecosocial justice classes for teens and tweens

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We never want tuition to be a barrier to any child's learning. We must charge tuition in order to pay our teachers. If you are not able to pay tuition or only partial tuition, your child is still equally as welcome to learn with us. Email beth@fosterwoods.org for scholarship information.

LiberateTeen is our history, literature, and political education focus for tween and teen learners, all taught within an ecosocial justice framework. The centerpiece of the LiberateTeen school is our 12-week course covering Howard Zinn's A Young People's History of the United States.

 

What do we mean by ecosocial justice framework?

At the Foster Woods Folk School, we believe ecosocial justice is a thriving planet that celebrates diversity and makes equity policy. We imagine a world where all people can live in safety and dignity, with fair, sustainable access to resources. We are anti-racists and intersectional feminists, who believe that non-human animals also have the right to safe, healthy lives, freedom, and access to resources fitting for their species. As Lilla Watson said, we believe that "our liberation is bound up" with all people, the planet, and the animals with whom we share our Earth.
