Introducing City Neighbors Communities of Practice








City Neighbors Foundation is excited to launch a new effort to build communities of practitioners striving toward a truly child-centered, democratic ideal of education.

City Neighbors Foundation will launch two Communities of Practice:

  • Innovative, Powerful Teaching
  • Anti-Racist, Culturally-Relevant Pedagogy

Communities of Practice will be facilitated by a City Neighbors educator, but the content, focus, and sharing will be guided by the participants.    We welcome up to 12 participants to each group..   

Communities of Practice will launch in March 2021 and will meet every other month for 60-90 minutes and will culminate at the 11th Annual Progressive Education Summit in January 2022.   (Note:  the Anti-Racist, Culturally Relevant Pedagogy Community will meet monthly).

  • Meetings will take place virtually.   The Community of Practice may collaboratively elect to change platforms, venues, or the virtual/in-person form of the meetings. 
  • All members of the Community of Practice will be expected to attend the 2022 Summit in person as a culmination of the work together. 

Interested participants should complete the application here.

Participation in the Community of Practice is free, sponsored by City Neighbors Foundation.
