Please note: This year participants will
be a combination of new people (Phase 1) and people continuing the work from
previous years. They will come from a variety of communities, organizations,
family structures, and lines of work. They will be motivated by both personal
and professional concerns, and a desire to work in a group setting.
The UNtraining is held in groups that meet once a month for six months in a workshop format that combines presentation of concepts and tools, experiential exercises, self-reflection and group process. The meetings are generally held on weekends.
The People of Color Group began in 2013 and expanded in 2014. In 2016, the Chinese group combined with the POC group.
Phase One introduces the basic concepts and tools of the UNtraining.
It is our intention that all who are committed be able to participate. The total cost for the six sessions is a sliding scale of $1200 to $700. This allows people with a wide range of incomes to participate, while encouraging those who can afford more to support the work to the greatest degree they can. You place yourself on the sliding scale. Payment plans can be arranged. Many participants use professional development funds from employers to cover all or part of their fee. Please let us know how we can support you.
