Educator Training in Hawai'i

WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY

Where: Our 4-day educator training will be held on O'ahu at the University Lab School. (Here is a campus map pointing to University Building 3, more details on parking and room location will be included in later communications.)

When: July 24-July 27, 2017

What: We will immerse administrators and teachers in Project Wayfinder's newly developed set of tools and resources from our Wayfinder Navigation Toolkit. This toolkit is inspired by the work of Polynesian Voyaging Society and the inspiration of Polynesian voyaging and navigation. But this is not a “how to” on voyaging - this will be a deeply immersive and transformative experience for educators, cultivating the tools we need to navigate through life. Click here to read more about the inspiration for this project in UC Berkeley's Greater Good.

Who: Our training is open to high school educators including advisory teachers, administrators, school leaders, and counselors and non-profit groups that work with high school students. We will not be accepting middle schools at this time, but are open to some college-aged program leaders. Priority will be given to Hawaiʻi schools, but mainland and international schools can apply. The training will be limited to 40 people. Schools are highly encouraged to apply with one or more people from their home institution. We only need one application per school/organization.
