Annual Leadership Institutes

Every year, Population Education hosts two Leadership Institutes – facilitator training events to 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. A two-day event is held each summer and a one-day event is held each fall.
