People’s College of Transition Skills
The People’s College of Transition Skills is an initiative of Transition Rogers Park. It is a grass-roots, informal network of neighbor teaching neighbor. We meet in homes, backyards, parks, schools, or empty storefronts to share our skills with each other.
This summer, the People’s College is scheduling and facilitating a variety of skillshares and workshops in collaboration with the Mess Hall, 6932 N. Glenwood Avenue. These events will take place on Sunday mornings from 10:00 AM until noon and run concurrently with the Rogers Park Glenwood Sunday Market from June 26 through October 16.
