TEACHER TRAINING OPTIONS
Becoming a Wayfinder Educator isn’t just about learning a new curriculum — it means developing your role as a mentor for your students and deepening your awareness of your own purpose journey.
Consequently, we require that any educator who wishes to teach the Wayfinder Toolkit completes at least two days of training with our experienced Wayfinder Guides.
We offer three training options to suit your needs.
OPTION 1. Book a 2-Day On-Site Training
If you are interested in becoming a Wayfinder Partner School, hosting an On-Site Training is the best option for you. On-Site Trainings are ideal for schools/programs that have 8 or more educators who will be teaching the Wayfinder Toolkit. Learn more about booking an On-Site Training here.
OPTION 2. Organize a 2-Day Multi-school Training
If you are interested in bringing Project Wayfinder to your area but do not have enough educators to book an On-Site Training, you can host a Multi-School Training at your school and invite other schools to join from your area. Learn more about organizing a Multi-School Training here.
OPTION 3. Attend a 4-day Summer Institute
Our 4-day Summer Institutes are a great way to experience Project Wayfinder in more depth and meet other schools from around the globe who are working on purpose learning. Since our inaugural Institute at Stanford d. school in June 2017, Wayfinder has hosted two Institutes per summer, typically in June on the U.S. West Coast and in July on the East Coast. Attending an Institute is the best option for educators who want to implement Project Wayfinder within their high school community the following academic year. Educators are encouraged to come to an Institute with a group of 3-4 from their school who will go through the immersive training experience together and leave equipped to bring purpose learning to their classrooms with the Wayfinder Toolkit.
The enrollment period for Wayfinder Summer Institutes opens in January of each year.
