What are the workshops and trainings like?

Each of our trainings uses a core curriculum to teach specific skills necessary for heroic action. Lessons for group trainings can be tailored to a certain degree based upon specific needs or experiences of the group. During the session participants will engage in group and self-reflection, interactive activities, small group work, goal-setting, and planning. The curriculum itself consists of various discussion questions, lecture segments, videos, and activities. These components are deliberately layered to delicately elicit changes in beliefs and behavior over the course of the lesson.

Most of our workshops for heroes in training last 2-3 hours. Some changes can be made to accommodate specific lengths of time for certain groups. Typically, 1-2 workshops are conducted in one day. Virtual sessions are available under certain circumstances.

 

Our HIP Educator Trainings typically last 3-4 hours per lesson in which the group is being trained. These sessions include a deep-dive discussion on the word “hero”. Typically groups are trained in up to one lesson per day. Virtual sessions are available under certain circumstances. Beginning in April 2018, the HIP Educator Training Program will also include an online preparation component that participants can complete independently.

Is there room for professional growth?

If they wish, and if they qualify to do so, all HIP Educators have an opportunity to grow into the role of HIP Trainer. This role is intended for individuals seeking to work at least part-time as a trainer/facilitator/speaker outside the organization with which they might be currently affiliated. HIP Trainers may charge fees for their workshops and can be commissioned by HIP for trainings or find their own work. Upskilling into this role requires additional training, both in-person and online. Please click here if you have inquiries regarding this specific role.

 

What if I want something else?

We often receive inquiries that ask HIP to collaborate, support projects, provide keynote speakers, or to give advice. Other inquiries seek internships or offer HIP in-kind services. We love these inquiries and answer them as fast as our office can. Please understand that not every inquiry will be a perfect fit for HIP, but it is a priority for us to engage the community that we serve as best we can. Click here to submit your inquiry.
