Lainie is a best selling author, international speaker, community leader, teen mentor and alternative education advocate who helped to spearhead the thriving worldschooling movement.
As a result of the 2008 California economy crash, Liberti closed her Los Angeles based branding agency. Liberti and her then 9-year-old Miro decided to “be the change” instead of victims and chose a life of adventure. After, selling all of their possessions, Lainie and her son hit the road for what was to be a one year adventure in 2009. After thirteen years and almost 50 countries, the pair calls Guanajuato, Mexico their home.
Lainie chose to educate her son Miro through the world, facilitating rich experiential learning, cultural immersion, volunteering and leadership as his school. We call this worldschooling.
Liberti has spoken about worldschooling on the TEDx Edu stage in Amsterdam, written about learning through travel for multiple magazines, academic journals, and web sites including International Journal of Education, Journal of Unschooling and Alternative Learning, People Magazine, Huffington Post, USA Today, The New York Times and The New York Post and has contributed to several books on the topic of worldschooling.
Lainie published the Amazon best-selling book Seen, Heard & Understood, Parenting and Partnering with Teens for Greater Mental Health in May, 2022. Lainie Liberti is the founder and creator of Transformative Mentoring for Teens that launched in early 2020 offering virtual 1:1 coaching for teens as well as a 12-week course designed to transform lives. Lainie is a certified life coach, specializing in transformational coaching.
Lainie co-foundered Project World School with her son in 2012. Liberti designs and co-facilitates the Project World School teen retreats as month-long immersive learning learning communities to support self directed teens from around the world. Over the last 10 years, Lainie has facilitated 20+ international retreats for over 100 teenagers, learning through cultural immersion, examining personal values and exploring world views.
