Workshops

Young Philosopher workshops are student-centered, and based on the creation of a ‘community of philosophical inquiry’ among the participants. Our young thinkers do not learn passively, as they often do in the traditional school setting, but develop and investigate ideas and proposals in collaboration with each other. Our instructors do not teach your children what they need to know, but rather help them to become independent and self-reliant thinkers, confident in their own ability to think things through.

Young Philosopher after school workshops are offered in different communities around the city. Students meet with a facilitator for eight 90 minute sessions.

Interested but want to know more? Then have your child join us for a free, one-session workshop so they can find out how much fun philosophy for kids can be!  Follow the links below for more specific information about what is offered at our different locations.
