Annual Leadership Institutes

Sign-up below to stay up-to-date on future “train the trainer” events from PopEd.

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

National Summer Institute – Apply today!

The 2022 Summer Leadership Institute will be held in person on July 15-17, 2022 at the Warren Conference Center and Inn in Ashland, Massachusetts. See flyer for more information. Applications are due by March 22, 2022.

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.

Fall Regional Institutes

We hope to host two 1-day facilitator trainings in September 2021. Locations are TBD.
