WHAT WE DO
LIFE SKILLS WORKSHOPS
For student groups: Interactive workshops empower students by exploring topics such as self-management and leadership; purposeful decision-making; career exploration and financial literacy; identity awareness and cultural respect; individuality and uniqueness; and healthy relationships. Our goal is to have young people tap into their inner strength as well as into the strength of supportive relationships to achieve self-defined success. Workshops are tailored for groups of young people in 6th through 10th grades.
For young adults: Increasingly, we understand that the inheritance of knowledge is a powerful tool in affecting life outcomes. Even when individuals make career or financial gains from one generation to the next, the lack of knowledge of certain life skills can erase those gains. Innovative workshops help develop the skills in young people that empower them to achieve and retain success in unfamiliar landscapes. Workshop topics include personal financial management, mental wellness, effective communication, entrepreneurship, and how to navigate between differing communities. Workshops are tailored to serve young people ages 16 to 24.
AWARENESS AND INCLUSION WORKSHOPS
For adult groups: Intertwined understands that we are increasingly required to demonstrate competence navigating diverse environments yet often are not equipped with the tools to do so. Workshops explore how our core values impact our human interactions and provide participants with practical ways to honor their own values system while simultaneously creating respectful and meaningful human relationships with those around them. Our workshops seek to increase understanding of communities of color, women, LGBTQ+ individuals, youth raised in foster care, undocumented persons and those from low income backgrounds. Workshops can be tailored for companies, faith-based groups, parent-teacher associations, educators, or any other groups wanting to build more aware and inclusive communities.
Intertwined now offers online, self-guided mini-courses for enthusiastic individual learners. Learn more here!
RIPPLES FACILITATION INTERNSHIP
The RIPPLES internship enhances both the Awareness and Inclusion and the Life Skills workshops. As co-facilitators of the Awareness and Inclusion workshops, RIPPLES interns pull from their own experiences of exclusion to make the exploration of workshop topics more relevant for participants. For the interns themselves, the internship experience deepens practice of Life Skills material in a real world environment.
The RIPPLES internship is a paid internship opportunity. Interns are selected through a rigorous hiring process. The program is designed to serve young adults ages 18 to 24.
