What our learners say

LEARN Without Limits is fantastic. I enjoyed gathering with like-minded individuals, educators, that are able to discuss best practice and give us ideas on things we can take back.
Shanine Arnold, Afterschool Educator
A few words I'd use to describe my LEARN Without Limits experience: Reflection, validation, positivity, support, a fuller toolbox, resourcefulness, a shared experience and that we're all amazing.

LEARN>Without Limits is an educational platform created by the team at Development Without Limits, an educational consulting group. We wanted to be able to offer our learning expertise in an easy-to-access way and LEARN>WL is it!

I'm still not sure LEARN>Without Limits is for me, who can I talk to?

You may still have questions or need to talk through how you can gain access to LEARN>WL for your whole team. Please reach out to Jennifer Brady to talk through your needs.

Do you offer additional discounts for nonprofits?

DWL seeks to ensure equity and access to high-quality learning experiences for all our partners, as we believe meaningful engagement is more vital than ever.  We understand that professional learning has historically been undervalued in our field and many organizations struggle to secure funding to invest in their own staff development. With this in mind, we’ve intentionally priced our courses for organizations with limited budgets and limited time. 

We honor our mutual commitment to investing in the well-being and development of your staff, so they can be responsive and equipped to thrive and support young people.  In the spirit for the collective good, and to advance our vision so that all youth-serving leaders and staff can benefit personally and professionally from these timely and healing-centered courses, we are pleased to offer pay-what-you-can pricing on some of our products.  Please contact us for details.

Is there other funding available to support professional development?

Because summer and afterschool programs qualify to get funds directly as part of the American Rescue Plan, we recommend checking out the Afterschool Alliance’s page on accessing ESSER funds to support program costs including professional learning.
Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world.”
