As an anti-racist, feminist organization, we continually work to recognize the ways in which systems of oppression impact our work and the lives of participants and their families. We hope to see an end to poverty and vast income inequality soon. In the meantime, we strive to make our programs accessible to all applicants, regardless of their economic resources.
The tuition is: $200 on a sliding scale for the session! You can enroll in one, two, or all three classes dependent on your interest. The fee is the same for the program.
