Communities of Practice
Who: NGOs, Community Leaders, Peacebuilders, Education Networks, International Organizations
How: #MeWeIntl’s most common model is working with local community organizations and NGOs where #MeWeIntl’s core team lead multiple two to five-day of trainings for trainers. The series of trainings, led by #MeWeIntl over the course of one to one and half years—can be customized for staff, community facilitators, and youth leaders/caregivers. Our interactive training models activate networks of practice from within the community with an understanding of the #MeWeIntl methodology, and equip them with tools and actions for community mobilization and facilitation of #MeWeIntl’s customized programming to their peers. Trainings include specialized follow-up sessions on self-care, monitoring and evaluation, storytelling, and facilitation skills-building.
Direct Service Workshops
Who: Youth, Caregivers, Community Workers, Educators, Health-Workers, Business Leaders, and Social Entrepreneurs.
How: In addition to cultivating communities of practice in our methodology, #MeWeIntl also directly leads short term workshops for youth, social entrepreneurs, private-sector companies, non profit-organizations, and educators. Workshops, which can be customized to be anywhere between a half-day to 3 days, focus on the science of storytelling, neuro-education, narrative structures, writing, and public speaking. Our facilitators engage participants in communications practices that support leaders or community activists’ with perspective-taking and goal-setting tools, and opens up pathways that connect communication skills-building to empathy, psychological wellbeing, agency, and community engagement.
