Virtual Classroom Training
A virtual classroom is an online teaching and learning environment where the training facilitator and the training participant can present course materials, engage, and interact with other members of the virtual class, and work in groups together. The key distinction of a virtual classroom is that it takes place in a live, synchronous setting. Online coursework can involve the viewing of pre-recorded, asynchronous material, but virtual classroom platform helps make the learning experience interactive and engaging while providing a structured environment. Participants can connect to the virtual classroom platforms from any device that can connect to the internet. The virtual classroom experience is scheduled for Friday, 2 - 4 PM, eastern time, and operates for 8 weeks.
The training seminar is an in-person experience, scheduled for 8 AM - 5 PM each day, for the dates identified in the registration links below.

In each of the three locations, training participants should not schedule travel until they've received their onboarding and welcome letter from the training delivery.
The Renaissance Way
This idea of the renaissance way is about a pattern of doing things, aligned to a compelling mission, that guides our ideas, thoughts, and behaviors around our work. It postures that positive intentions, coupled with a relentless effort to take each day, give your all, make it your best, and impact the lives of young people from the posture that their life experience was the soil through which a new life experience could spring forth. The renaissance way espouses this magic that suggests that we endeavor to building dreams…

I have never attended a modularized training before, but I don't know how I will do any other training. I loved being able to take my time, pause when I needed a brain break and time to reflect. Such a great experience - Thank you!
