The Apprenticeship Program: Sustainable and organic growth

Older participants have a chance to enter an “apprenticeship” program where they are accompanied in the art of teaching by experienced LIDE facilitators. During this apprenticeship, they also attend weekly training where they learn introductory concepts in education and active-learning pedagogies, while strengthening their skills in the arts. Many of our apprentices have gone on to lead new LIDE programs in their own communities.
