Talking Stick Learning Center is a Philadelphia non-profit educational initiative that offers young people an environment to explore, collaborate, and create.
The Talking Stick method organically develops essential life skills such as decision making, creative problem solving, communication, self-management, and critical thinking. We provide a safe and supportive space that respects the individual and nurtures children's innate curiosity and desire to learn.
It is our goal to support this community by balancing sustainability with affordability, with a focus on making our programming accessible for all families. We partner with longstanding anchors of the neighborhood, like the Awbury Arboretum, to sustainably share space and pool resources.
We are a service group of Mt. Airy Community Services Corporation (MACSC), a 501 (c) 3 organization whose mission is to serve as a stable financial umbrella for nonprofit groups serving the Northwest section of the city of Philadelphia. Other MACSC members are Weavers Way Community Programs, Mt. Airy Learning Tree, Mt. Airy Garage, and the Chestnut Hill Center for Enrichment.
Talking Stick Families Live across the Greater Philadelphia Area
Our current families come from across the city, across the state, and even across state lines. We are very proud to serve as an accessible homeschooling hub for the local and greater Philadelphia communities.
