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, deepening 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.”
