2019 WAYFINDER SUMMER INSTITUTES

Wayfinder’s summer training proved to be the most positively transformative training program I have ever undertaken as an educator. My entire outlook in arenas of my own life changed. The training reinforced my view that not only can we guide and support students to live meaningful lives, we can also affect so many more people through the projects and movements they create.
— Brent Kerehona - Cabramatta High School, Australia

Wayfinder Institutes provide teachers with the training needed to successfully implement Project Wayfinder in their classroom. In 2018, we hosted two Wayfinder Institutes at Stanford University and Brown University with 93 educators from 55 schools/organizations across 17 states and 8 countries.

This year we invite you to join us at our Institutes hosted by two Wayfinder Partner Schools. Please note that we are offering a new residential (4 days, 4 nights) training option at our West Coast Institute.

Upon completion of this training, you will be equipped with strategies, tactics, and skills based in social emotional learning, project based learning, design thinking + 21st Century Skills that you will be able to integrate directly into your school/program’s community.

Who are WAYFINDER institutes for?

The program is open to high school educators. We have trained advisers, administrators, counselors, teachers, coaches, and more.

Wayfinder Institutes are ideal for training 2-7 educators from a school or program. We highly encourage schools to bring at least one teacher and one school leader - we find that this helps with integrating Project Wayfinder into your school/program’s community. Priority for admittance will be given to teams with one school leader and one teacher or more.

If you are interested in training 8 or more educators from your school/program, consider hosting an On-Site Training at your school.
