Education & Training
Social change organizations often struggle to enlist communities as full partners in their work, compromising their ability to achieve long-term sustainable impact. We equip social change leaders to build trust, collaborate and solve problems creatively, develop critical analysis, plan strategically, and foster an inclusive environment where initiatives can flourish.
The training we offer is grounded in experiential, arts-based techniques based on an integral approach to human development. Built upon the strong link between highly creative individuals and strong leaders, we designed a comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes the development of these common characteristics. Our aim to spark three levels of transformation: Individual Empowerment, Community Development and Systemic Change, and develop the four elements of creativity: Fluency, Flexibility, Originality and Elaboration.
Our trainees deepen their own creativity and leadership capacity, while acquiring a toolkit to spread the spark and enhance their facilitation and collaboration skills, boosting overall effectiveness in the advancement of their missions. We provide follow up coaching, technical assistance and other resources to guide our partners in the subsequent application of their training.
