WHO WE ARE
The Local Scholar is a comprehensive education firm designed to inspire a love of learning, dedication to self-development and a commitment to equity, inclusion and social justice - in all fields of endeavour - through extraordinary learning experiences.
We work with individuals and organizations to move learning beyond the classroom using a holistic, experiential and critical anti-racist praxis that centres kindness, courage and perseverance in both scholarship and character.
We provide a safe space to learn, grow and develop because we care about you, your clients and our community.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Our love of learning leads us to engage in continual learning experiences with experts, practitioners and community members. In addition to our robust formal education, we focus on learning as an everyday practice to continuously enhance our work with others.
We believe in the transformative power of mentorship and strive to connect with clients in the ways our mentors connected with us. We honour your experiences and learning journey and aim to be a safe space to learn, explore and discover, while setting the boundaries needed to move towards more growth, perseverance and critical engagement with complex social issues.
We have lived, learned and worked in over 15 countries helping us understand the importance of context and language.

donate part of our anti-racism workshop fees to Indigenous-run and Indigenous-serving organizations.
