Annual Leadership Institutes

Unfortunately, all 2020 Leadership Institutes – PopEd’s “train the trainer” events – have been postponed until 2021.

Annual Leadership InstituteTypically, Population Education hosts Leadership Institutes every year. These facilitator training events provide further preparation for our new teacher trainers.

During the event, participants receive thorough training on presenting PopEd lessons to fellow educators and the PopEd workshop format, and meet others who are committed to Population Education. Typically, a two-day event is held each summer and a one-day event is held each fall.

Leadership Institutes are essentially free of charge; we cover the cost of accommodations as well as most meals and travel expenses.

National Summer Institute

The summer Leadership Institute has been postponed to July of 2021 and will take place at the Warren Conference Center and Inn in Ashland, Massachusetts (25 miles southwest of Boston).

Fall Regional Institutes

We will host two 1-day facilitator trainings in September 2021. One will be in Indianapolis, IN and one in Auburn, WA (outside of Seattle).
