A community-powered learning marketplace

Bendable is a lifelong learning platform that allows residents of all ages and backgrounds to acquire new knowledge and skills through online courses as well as local, in-person opportunities.

“It’s a great democratic—small ‘d’—platform that makes this knowledge base and skill set available to all of our residents. Having that exposure will only help people move up the ladders of opportunity over time.”

– James Mueller Mayor of South Bend
