Albuquerque Old School
Old School is a hub of experts happily sharing their user-friendly skills to further the revolution of sustainable and frugal living. Until now, these awesome resources in Albuquerque have had a loose network of independent workshops and classes. Now, these experts and offerings are under one roof, making Old School the place to find the skills you want to learn.
Their classes are intentionally priced to make them affordable for families in need of these skills. Free or low-cost SAFE childcare is available in order to open opportunities for folks otherwise unable to attend classes.
Their financial model is simple. If there are funds left over after paying for rent and supplies, teachers get half of it. At least 10 percent of any leftover funds is donated to a charity. The remainder is returned to the school to compensate administrators and keep the school running (website and advertising).
If you don’t see a topic on their list, let them know. They’ll use their network to find a teacher for you, and then they’ll host a class. If you want to take a class but it doesn’t work with your schedule, talk to them. That teacher might offer a class to meet your schedule.
Or if you have a skill you think fits their mission, let them know. Maybe you can join their experts in spreading the traditional, frugal and sustainable living skills that make Old School so neat.
