The Art of Learning Project
The Art of Learning Project was started by Josh Waitzkin (subject of Searching for Bobby Fischer and author of The Art of Learning) to aid educators in implementing best practice learning strategies for their organisations.
Their mission is to provide educators, coaches, parents, and students with a roadmap to learning that cultivates self-expression, resilience, passion, and creativity within the larger learning environment.
TAOLP provide education resources, and connect teachers around the world who are united in their belief that learners thrive when their growth process is uniquely tailored to their own unique nuance of character. By sharing the latest research, best practice methodologies and our own experiences working with students, TAOLP partners are dedicated to constantly improving their own organisations as the best way of achieving better student outcomes.
IRL are proud to partner with TAOLP and be part of the global community of educators dedicated to sharing Josh's philosophy of learning.
OnCourse are a registered charity based in Australia that work to alleviate poverty in Kenya by providing education and employment opportunities to women and youth.
OnCourse are deeply integrated in the local community to ensure they identify those most in need and provide services that empower their beneficiaries for the greatest benefit possible. They are dedicated to organisational efficiency, transparency and trust, and are proud to operate without any Australian overheads, meaning all donations go directly to their programmes in Kenya.
OnCourse run three core programmes;
- Providing vocational training to young men and women as a way to long term employment and self-sustainability for themselves, their families and their community
- Funding young children to pay for the essentials of Primary School, meaning children who would otherwise be excluded are able to attend school and gain an education
- Microfinance lending to empower women excluded from the formal financial system to start their own businesses to support their families.
IRL Education is proud to partner with OnCourse by dedicating 10% of our profits to the Charity.
