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.
Fall 2018 Institute
The 2018 fall Leadership Institute will be held on September 22nd in Atlanta, GA and is open to new and prospective trainers in the southeast part of the U.S. We are currently accepting applications until June 13, 2018.
Leadership Institutes are essentially free of charge; we cover the cost of accommodations as well as most meals and travel expenses. Because this will be a one-day Institute, pre- and post-homework will be required to ensure all aspects of being a PopEd trainer are covered.
