TLC+ will uphold the values and aims of The Learning Centre, Goa: to nurture active, joyful and courageous learners with the ability to think critically and imaginatively, and yet remain compassionate and humble.
We believe that this will allow young people and their mentors to engage with experiential and theoretical learning in a manner that will enable them to lead their lives with awareness and knowledge of themselves and their eco-systems, and to analyse and question the hegemonies and power structures that endanger them.
We have faith that they will use their knowledge and skills to solve problems with courage and kindness, work alongside others with a sense of fairness and justice, and stand against all forms of discrimination and oppression.
While TLC Plus is envisaged as a four-year programme, it can be adapted to the needs of the individual learner in relationship with their facilitators and mentors.
