Our Ultimate BOOTCAMP! ™ Series is designed to create thought-provoking dialogues in an inclusive environment. It is a comprehensive, customized, highly interactive and impactful educational experience that is shared in an introspective and engaging way. We present the information in an evidence based and non-offensive manner. Additionally, we challenge our participants to utilize critical analysis to increase their understanding.
Our educational experiences utilize our FLEX™ facilitation model. This model is innovative because it is a customized experience that blends speaking, training and consulting with engaging and interactive activities. Utilizing a combination of active learning, peer to peer education, and role playing, we provide a holistic and inclusive experience that adapts to the needs of your community.
We integrate our FLEX™ facilitation with an activity-based platform that includes multimedia presentations, group breakouts, pair and share, social media exercises and individual reflections. This innovation approach and style creates an inclusive, fun and free-flowing educational experience. BOOTCAMP! participants will leave with individual, chapter and council strategies to grow their communities in a healthy, collaborative, and sustainable way.
Great times to host BOOTCAMP!s are during regularly scheduled Council meetings (e-board or general body)
