Every year, Population Education hosts Leadership Institutes to provide further training for our new facilitators. During the event, participants receive thorough training on our workshops and resources, and meet others who are committed to Population Education.
Our 2-day summer Institute is national in scope, open to new and prospective trainers from around the U.S. The location changes each year. In 2017, our Summer Institute will be held in Morrilton, Arkansas on July 14-16. This event is now fully booked. In the fall, we host a regional Institute, open only to educators from a specific geographic region. For 2017, this event will be held in Richmond, VA on September 23 and we are currently accepting applications.
Leadership Institutes are essentially free of charge; we cover the cost of accommodations as well as most meals and travel expenses. It is a fun-filled and educational weekend!

Thank YOU for organizing a really amazing weekend. I've already been in touch with several of my "classmates" regarding ideas we all wanted to follow up on.
