Who We Serve

Our participants are defined by attitude, not age.

Because we believe that the composition of the classroom is as important as the content of the curriculum, our seminar and certificate programs target three groups at the core of a vibrant civil society: the leaders of local NGOs, civil servants and university communities— including both students and faculty.

Participants range from 19 to 67 years old – the average is about 40 – and they come from a wide variety of professional and educational backgrounds. The interactive group exercises at the core of our pedagogy encourage participants to work together as equals towards common goals and on tight deadlines. This experience, in turn, helps to cement new civic partnerships, ventures and respect across a variety of professional and social divides.
