There will be an all-day workshop and cookout on Saturday, August 29. The event includes a thorough orientation to key principles and in-depth exercises on the purpose of your work. It is an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow Associates and our coaches.

Coaching sessions take place with a “Pod” of 5 to 8 participants led by an executive coach, a format that combines experienced advice with the support of a team. The dates and times are scheduled by each Pod, and most meetings happen virtually (via Zoom).

Is there a cost for the program?

To ease financial difficulties during COVID-19, and thanks to a generous donor, we are able to reduce the monthly fee to $30 per month, for 10 months. The fee is collected before each of the 9 workshops, plus the orientation. Participants can withdraw at any time with no further obligation.
