Cultural Competency: Not another diversity training- we promise! This workshop is an alternate approach to embracing diversity in the workplace.  We all know diversity is important, and in fact allows for different kinds of ideas and styles to get together.  The issue is how do we harness the diversity within the workplace to actually work for us.  This workshop looks at organizational systems that utilize the diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and cultural norms to truly create a multicultural organization.

Remember to Fill Your Tank: Self Care for Youth Workers

The Accidental Art Teacher: Supporting Creativity in School & After-school: There is little argument that the arts are a necessary element of the after-school experience.  But how do you make it fun, challenging, and effective when you don’t have a large art budget?  The answer: find your staff’s passions and talents and allow them to share those with the students.  But these passionate youth workers cannot become art teachers over night.

Finding Stillness and Creating Space: Self-Care in the Workplace: When the chatter and clutter and of our everyday lives leaves little room for the essential work of connecting to your inner voice and balancing work, life and play it is essential that we pause.  And in this pause create space to do our important work without being worked on ourselves.  This workshop draws on the practices of Native American, Sufi, Yogic and Quaker traditions to bring simple tools to restore and revitalize.
