About the training (why two days?):
Growing Communities is both a training program, and a 'training of
trainers'. For that reason, we give preference to those able to attend
both Friday and Saturday. During the Saturday workshop, you will be
learning new material, and - equally important - putting your training
to use by presenting a workshop module to the group. Both steps are very
important learning experiences, and the active involvement is what sets
this workshop apart. -
