 October/November 2023 Force of Awesome Institute Registration is Now Open!

Training the Trainers

Our intensive program spans 24 hours and enables participants to design, adapt, and deliver their curricular objectives whatever the sensitive topic – with increased effectiveness. Unlike other training models that utilize specific, routinized content, our participants learn how to integrate their own content and expertise in designing programs relevant to their very specific community. Through daily instruction, presentation delivery, and coaching, every participant grows as a successful partner. Moreover, once they have completed the program, they have the capacity to return to their organization able to support others on their team.

We specialize in teaching others how to present the toughest issues: sexual violence and harassment prevention, power and oppression, LGBTQIA rights and inclusivity, and any topic that inspires similar levels of defensiveness and emotion. We know these subjects are not just about listing policies: they are challenges to beliefs and behaviors and it takes a great educator with strong content to reach people where they are.


We can turn nervous presenters into confident instructors and take individuals from “Good” to “Great.”

They will leave our institute transformed, and ready to take action in changing your organization for the better.

Like the last few iterations, the institute will be conducted virtually. This most accurately addresses the common time, location, and budget concerns of our attendees.

We are tentatively planning our next session in late October/early November. There will be eight (8) sessions total, twice per week (Thursday and Friday), from 11 am to 2 pm EST. Subject to cancellation due to low enrollment.
