Embrace Communities offers three levels of training in Asset-Based Community Development:
The Introductory Power Shift Training Series: an introductory level training series for those who are new to or need a refresher in Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) principles and tools of practice. This series is offered bi-annually in the spring and fall for members of the Empowered Communities Network but can be scheduled at any time for those outside the network who are paying the full cost of the training.
The Practitioner Power Shift Training: a practitioner level training series for those who want to implement the Empowered Communities Framework principles and tools into their community engagement and development work. This series is offered annually each winter for members of the Empowered Communities Network but can be scheduled at any time for those outside the network who are paying the full cost of the training.
The Train the Trainer Power Shift Series: a more advanced level and in-depth series for those who want to learn how to train others in the Empowered Communities Framework and customize the tools for their unique context. This series is offered annually each summer only to those who are members of the Empowered Communities Network.
Completion of a Train the Trainer level series is required for all who are seeking to become certified coaches or trainers in the Empowered Communities Framework.
