3 hour certificate (3 CE's also available)

This three hour interactive workshop is designed to help participants appreciate their commonalities with others as well as their uniqueness. Participants are encouraged to set personal goals, stretch outside their comfort level of personal involvement and interaction. This training empowers individuals by applying strength based perspectives to identify and maximize their assets, encouraging them to find ways to contribute as advocates for themselves, their families and communities. Capacity Building has proven beneficial for youth groups, mentoring programs, community and faith-based organizations. It is a great team building experience for personal and professional enhancement at any age.
