The Eden Alternative Academy is your next step for the culture change journey. Are you one of our Associates? Or a champion of culture change in general? Enroll in the Eden Alternative Academy to share ideas, learn new approaches, and enhance your toolkit! A team of 2 or more from your organization are welcome to enroll. Consider all care partners as potential students (employees, family members, and the Elders themselves).
Here’s how the Academy works…
- Students enroll for a 4-8 week semester course of their choice;
- Each week highlights a specific focus that supports the overall course theme;
- Each week features stories and wisdom from all participants, which deepens learning potential;
- Takeaways include practical tools and resources that turn theory into practice; and
- Students apply what they learn in between online sessions through weekly “growth work.”
