Project LEARN (Literacy, Education and Resources Network)

Another wonderful interdistrict grant program is LEARN’s “Pathways to Freedom and Friendship.” While the partner schools interact with each other throughout the school year, PIER engages with each set of sister schools once per year. For this program, PIER tells the students about the resources available to them at the MacMillan Center, facilitates a cross-cultural simulation game, introduces the group to some of Yale’s international students, and finally plays games with the students in an appropriate cultural context.
