LAST DAY . . .

LEARN. CREATE. GIVE BACK.

It’s always a good time to learn here at Skillshare, but we’re making it even easier to sharpen your skills… and do some good while you’re at it.

Today, we’re launching GIVE BACK TO SCHOOL — Skillshare’s donating 100% of our proceeds to arts and music education for K-12 students through our partner 826 National (founded by writer Dave Eggers).

All you have to do is enroll in any online class by September 17th, and we’ll do the rest. To be clear, teachers on Skillshare are still getting their normal share of enrollment fees, but 100% of Skillshare’s cut is going to the kids!

To sweeten the deal even more, we’re giving you 25% off any online class. Use code GIVEBACK until Tuesday, September 17th.

So go forth, learn something and help the kids too!

— John @ Skillshare
