Fellowships of Spellers and Allies
Our Fellowships are a collection of classes and clubs through which spellers and allies come together to explore topics of interest. These groups offer opportunities to partake in learning experiences related to science, technology, the arts and everything in between. We offer inclusive programming, providing necessary support for those who need it, and we accommodate any learning style. This is an environment where the pursuit of knowledge and the development of skills are equally available to all learners in the community.
