Training the trainers
We designed the Force of Awesome Institute just for you: passionate, overworked individuals tasked with the enormous responsibility of teaching the toughest content out there. No matter your audience or subject matter, you deserve to be trained how to design and deliver the best content possible. You deserve that, and so do the communities you serve.
Getting Your Hands Dirty
FOA Institutes, while content-rich, are not “information dumps.” The research we share highlights the most relevant research in the fields of education, psychology, sociology, and moral development, as they apply to our specific content areas. We teach participants how to utilize that research strategically, and actionably—it’s not helpful if they can’t integrate it into their practice.
Mission: Not Impossible
Our mission is to reinvigorate the training component of the advocacy effort, imbuing it with energy, data, and skill. We are not just creating passionate orators who merely inspire; our educators will have the ability to translate their causes into purposeful actions that may be immediately taken by their audiences.
