Bendable Maine

Bendable Maine is being built as a community-centered lifelong learning system created by the Drucker Institute, a nonprofit social enterprise based at Claremont Graduate University. It allows residents of all ages and backgrounds to easily acquire new knowledge and skills through online courses as well as in-person learning opportunities.
The learning system’s aim is to make the residents of Maine more resilient in the face of a fast-changing economy. It is truly lifelong and universal but is focused, above all, on reaching those in the Maine community who have been most underserved. More about Bendable Maine. [PDF]
