Because it takes a village.
Who are we?
What do we do?
The Village Teacher was founded by educators from around the globe with a simple purpose in mind: work in communities to create a space where we can create, incubate, and connect educational innovation in ways that are relevant to the community. Each program and initiative is built on a foundation of inclusion, equitability, and access that meets the specific needs of the communities we work with.
Our programs are built on the idea that sustainable, equitable, and community relevant education can only truly developed by sharing intimate time and space with individuals from different communities and experiences. Access and inclusion to these types of experiences should never be withheld on the basis of socioeconomic privilege. If a learner or educator has the desire to learn or share, it is our mission to find sustainable, equitable, and transparent solutions for supporting and facilitating their educational goals.
