What we aim to solve New!

In 1999, a group of community members from the Passamaquoddy Tribe, the Euro-American community, and our neighbors from nearby New Brunswick, Canada, came together to find an answer to the question, “What would improve life in this rural region?" The study group that formed around that question focused on educational models that brought much-needed change around the world. The group paid particular attention to Danish folk schools, where teachers and learners of all ages develop and strengthen new skills in a challenging, supportive, community atmosphere.

The mission of the Cobscook Community Learning Center is to create responsive educational opportunities that strengthen personal, community, and global well-being.

Our vision is of a community that respects people and planet, and inspires, supports, and sustains people to achieve their greatest potential.

The organizational values of the CCLC, Peace, Honesty, Respect and Empowerment, are represented in the image of the medicine wheel. The Cobscook Community Learning Center is an intentionally created space committed to building bridges and being accessible to the people of the Cobscook Bay region and to social, economic, cultural, ecological, personal and familial empowerment. It is operated in the spirit of love, respect, humor, and creative, bold adventure.

Programs:

Cobscook
Based at the CCLC campus in Trescott, this program focuses on getting students outdoors, engaged in service-learning projects, and learning directly from people in our community while building their leadership, outdoor, academic and personal skills. Cobscook supports students in becoming excited, life-long learners; compassionate and clear communicators; and informed citizens who will address problems and approach opportunities in sustainable and creative ways.

TREE
TREE's model design is rooted in an understanding and respect for the community, which only comes through a commitment to thoughtful listening. As we reported in our Spring newsletter, TREE interviewed and listened to 22 administrators and conducted focus groups with 131 teachers and 186 students in Washington County to inform program design. TREE also took care to listen to parents and an array of non-profits working throughout Washington County. We knew the importance of gaining a true sense of both the strengths and challenges for Washington County schools and communities. TREE filled itself with this knowledge and then, in collaboration with educators and researchers from Colby College and the University of Maine, we entered an intensive design process.
