Support the next generation of fearless trainers and artful facilitators!

Have you ever sat through a really boring class or a useless meeting, and thought: There has to be a better way?

You’re right – there IS a better way. We know exactly how to do it, and we’re on a mission share all the tips, tools, and secret sauces.

Through Marlboro College’s new Training, Facilitation, and Consulting Certificate Program, we’re developing the next generation of fearless teachers, artful facilitators, and compassionate consultants.

We need your help. Please contribute today! 

This project is the brainchild of Andy Robinson, who recruited several of his favorite colleagues to help design and deliver the program: Stephanie Lahar, Dianne Russell of the Institute for Conservation Leadership, and the whole team at Marlboro’s Center for New Leadership.

This six-month program launched on October 16 with a inspiring class of emerging and established nonprofit leaders, consultants, and facilitators. (Follow along on instagram or facebook to see images of our first retreat together!)

To keep tuition affordable, we are raising money from the community: our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and clients.

This is your chance to invest in an amazing start-up venture, nonprofit-style. Your tax-deductible gift makes everything possible.

If you’ve ever benefited from a great teacher, and skilled facilitator, or anyone manages a group with grace and wisdom, then you’ll understand what we’re trying to do.
