8 Bi-Weekly Pod Meetings:
Pods are small groups of 5 to 8 participants that meet in person, every 2 weeks for 2 hours. Each Pod is led by a Facilitator, who guides them through the DCA curriculum, watching the videos and completing and discussing the exercises.
The entire program covers 16 weeks. In the Fall of 2021 it runs from August 31 to December 7.
Meetings with be scheduled at a convenient time and place (house, school, work, co-working space, etc). Most Pods will try to meet together on Tuesdays from 7 to 9pm ET.
Looking to create your own pod? Contact email@example.com.
There will also be larger social events during and after your participation in the program, to deepen the sense of friendship and community among all Associates. These get togethers are an excellent time to meet other Associates, Coaches and Facilitators.
