Train-the-Trainer

Earth Force offers Train the Trainer workshops to environmental nonprofits, government agencies, school districts, and others working with formal and informal educators. Our three-day workshops provide extensive training in action civics, environmental investigation, student-led learning, and the Community Action and Problem Solving Process.

Participants can expect to:

  • Learn the critical skills necessary for supporting community organizations and educators in integrating civic action into their educational experiences
  • Develop an implementation plan that can be put into action immediately following the training

In the first year after training, each trainer participates in small group, virtual monthly meetings to reinforce their training and to address challenges and questions that arise. In subsequent years, Earth Force Trainers meet with peers through our online network of trainers, and will have the opportunity to participate in twice a year refresher webinars.

Upcoming Workshops:

2019 Environmental Action Conference

July 29-31, 2019 at the Stroud Water Resources Center in Avondale, PA

Join Earth Force to learn how to incorporate a civic action focus into your organization’s education programming. This three-day workshop provides hands-on training in action civics and environmental investigation through Earth Force’s Community Action & Problem Solving Process through the lens of meeting local environmental policy initiatives. Participants will gain skills in project-based learning, create a strong peer network, and learn from a variety of great guest speakers. We will explore a variety of environmental topics and how they apply to participants’ communities. They then will take the knowledge they learned and train educators in their local communities with continued Earth Force support.
