Pods meet every two weeks at a convenient time for the Pod members.  A Facilitator guides participants through the DCA online curriculum consisting of videos, personal reflections, and Pod discussions.  Each person’s results are submitted to an experienced Coach, who meets with the Pod members twice during the semester.

Coupling that with the accountability and counsel of a personal mentor gave me the kickstart I needed to start achieving them.
