Description:

Our training and education program is grounded in decades of front-line service experience, drawing from a wealth of knowledge developed by professionals, practitioners and first voice individuals from a variety backgrounds and experiences.  Our trainers have years of professional, academic and in-field experience, providing learners with practical, informed lessons anchored to real world experiences, person directed principles, and evidence based best practices. Each organization, service, program or sector is unique– you confront specific challenges and needs, and we can customize and tailor content to meet those specific needs, challenges, and questions.
