EXPLORA

PUERTO ESCONDIDO, OAXACA, MEXICO

Explora ALC is a bi-lingual (English/Spanish) unschooling agile learning community committed to radically shifting the way we think about learning, education, parenting and what it means to be in community. We believe in deschooling and in a paradigm that exists outside of mainstream living and education. We walk to our own beat and stop to take the time to develop our inner compass, charting our own learning path within a supportive learning community

We believe the future of education is based on choice, equity, collaboration and freedom.

We see learning as a continuous process that happens everywhere. We work to foster empowerment, curiosity, play, trust, respect, equity and autonomy in all our members. We support liberation from oppressive systems in both kids and adults through age-mixing, play, exploration, dialogue, sharing and reflection. We center connection, valuing personal choice, mutual support and the development of consent based & equitable relationships. 

Explora is for you if:

  • You are committed to the deschooling* journey. 
  • You believe that learning is a natural part of life and people have the right to determine what, when and how they learn. 
  • You believe that kids are people too! 
  • You have the courage to live your life outside of mainstream education and dominant systems. 
  • You are ready to support freedom, autonomy and choice in your kid(s), self and others.
  • You are willing to look at your fears and limiting beliefs that are holding you back around learning, relationships and life.
  • You are committed to amplifying a sense of agency and social conscience in your kid(s), self and others. 
  • You want to be a participating member of a radical unschooling community where we care for one another.
 
* Deschooling is defined as “shedding the programming and habits that resulted from other people’s agency over our time, body, thoughts, and actions” – Akilah S. Richards ~ “Raising Free People”.
