At this year's National Conference, YNPN is bringing two great organizations to facilitate daylong workshops for chapter leaders from across the country. Thanks to a generous grant from the Bush Foundation, YNPs from the Twin Cities can apply for a select number of spots to participate in these "Deep Dives" free of charge.
There are two Deep Dives to choose from, and they are both great opportunities. You may apply for both programs, but you will only be accepted into one.
Applications are due on May 2nd. If selected, you will need to commit to attending the full-day workshop from 10:30am to 5:00pm on Friday, June 27th. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please read through the following descriptions to see which Deep Dive would be a good fit for you:
1. Connecting Career to Purpose with Echoing Green’s Work on Purpose Program
FULL - Applications for this session now closed!
YNPN is partnering with Echoing Green (http://www.echoinggreen.org/workonpurpose) to teach you how to become a Work on Purpose facilitator. As a Work on Purpose facilitator, you will acquire the tools you need to lead workshops for your community and help equip others with the skills they need to realize their unique way to make social impact.
Throughout its 25 year history, Echoing Green has performed thousands of indepth interviews with its worldchanging social entrepreneurship Fellows and has observed ten principles that lead individuals to fulfilling work that makes the world a better place. These ten principles are the cornerstone of Echoing Green’s Work on Purpose curriculum and training on which nearly 300 faculty and staff at over 100 colleges, universities and nonprofits have now been trained. Other Work on Purpose program offerings include an original book, an interactive online platform and a series of inspirational workshops and keynote addresses. Work on Purpose would be a valuable curriculum to bring back to your community because it provides inspiration and frameworks to support a wide spectrum of young people seeking to make the world a better place in a way that is uniquely right for them.
If you are excited about facilitating group workshops and passionate about helping others with personal and professional development so they can pursue meaningful work, then this is the Deep Dive for you!
2. Inclusive Leaders Create Inclusive Communities: Diving In
Still accepting applications through May 9th!
An important conversation in today’s workplace centers around this question: Why and how do we move from inclusion as a value to inclusion as a practice? This year, by offering a day-long intensive training track with the International Institute for Sustained Dialogue (http://www.sustaineddialogue.org/iisd.htm), we believe we can begin to move our communities towards addressing that question for the long haul.
The International Institute for Sustained Dialogue develops everyday leaders who engage differences as strengths to improve their campuses, workplaces, and communities. Sustained Dialogue is a five-stage social change model that is designed to transform relationships and create informed community change. Participants in this Deep Dive will learn how to be boundary spanners in their organizations and communities, practice empathy, form traits of authentic leadership, frameworks for better decision-making, and work in diverse teams.
If you are passionate about creating inclusive communities through a powerful dialogue to action process, then this is the Deep Dive for you!
