In announcing the formation of the Board of Advisors, Project World School’s Co-Founder Lainie Liberti stated, “The individuals making up the Board of Advisors have decades of combined wisdom and insight surrounding alternative education, learning and community development. PWS is honored to have them as advisors and visionaries as we move forward building a movement within the alternative education arena.”
PWS has hosted international learning communities for homeschooled and unschooled teenagers from the United States, Canada, Australia and Brazil since 2012, providing immersive learning opportunities for its participants throughout South America including locations in Peru’s Sacred Valley, the Amazon Jungle, and Ecuador’s Coast. The PWS temporary learning communities merge immersive learning experiences with personal and social development focusing on global citizenship, cultural sensitivity, exploring ethics and conflict resolution in real world situations. Project World School utilizes the power of a learning community to produce a project driven by goals, knowledge acquisition, and changes in a global perspective designed for the teen learner.
PWS co-creators are Americans Lainie Liberti and her 15 year old son Miro Siegel, who have traveled and world-schooled since 2009 when Miro was 10 years old. They co-author the popular blog and podcast Raising Miro on the Road of Life and for now, reside in Peru.
