Building an ecosystem of learning

LRNG Cities tap the innovation that starts from within the community. Cross-sector partnerships leverage the people and organizations that have an in-depth understanding of local problems and possibilities, and that can mobilize and efficiently share resources.

LRNG Cities combine in-school, out-of-school, employer-based and online learning experiences into a seamless network that is open and inviting to all youth. LRNG Cities connect youth to learning opportunities in schools, museums, libraries, and businesses, as well as online.
