New Way grew out of our New Alternative college service-learning program, and over the years we have provided more than 10,000 hours of training to an estimated 1,200 participants. We have hosted or visited over 30 universities for our program, and we are really just getting started!
Who should attend a training?
Everybody! We believe professionals, politicians, teachers, law enforcement officers, college students, non-profit leaders, parents, and kids should all be trained in these empowering techniques. We focus on young people, but can accommodate any type of group.
What types of trainings does New Way provide?
We can create customized training depending on the needs and goals of your group, but we have three basic styles of training that we offer.
These 2-8 hour workshop sessions provide an introduction to the history of nonviolence methods along with stories of how it has worked. We facilitate discussions about how violence affects our daily lives and provide tangible tools to equip participants to more readily resolve conflict. All workshops provide for a lot of interaction and will be customized based on the age and composition of the group.
- Group size: The ideal size for these trainings is 30-50 participants
- Cost: $80-$150/participant, depending on size, location and length of training
Weeklong Facilitator Trainings
This weeklong training provides the introductory information from the workshop and continues to weave in the interactive elements as well. In addition, it delves deeper into the principles of nonviolence and helps each participant develop a deeper understanding of these revolutionary concepts and how they can by applied. At the end of the training, each participant will be certified to facilitate workshop trainings.
- Group size:10-25 people
- Cost: $400/participant
New Way hosts a summer institute each year in Selma, Alabama to provide a Facilitator Training, and we can also bring a Facilitator Training to you. Ideally the training can be held over five consecutive 8-hour days. Sign up for our newsletter here to learn the dates of our summer institute.
Large Group Presentations
Our trainers also provide large group presentations or speaking engagements, which can be completely customized for your needs. From a grade school to a large corporate event, for a 15-minute speech to a 2-hour training, we will bring the powerful principles of nonviolent conflict resolution to your event.
