Learning Partners

What is a Learning Partnership?

A Learning Partnership is a broad term used to describe groups of committed individuals, students, and teachers who work together in equal exchanges to facilitate opportunities for learning, understanding the world around us, and advancing academic achievement for everyone involved.

Who can become a Learning Partner?

Anyone! Our aim is to build a community of students, teachers, learners, tutors, and mentors to help one another foster and facilitate continuous learning collaboration through mutual and beneficial exchanges. We aspire to engage students and participants through cross cultural connection between classrooms and communities, sharing our talents so that learning will be at its maximum benefit and optimal comfort for all.
