WHAT WE DO

LIFE EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOPS 

For middle school students: Intertwined 's semester-long program builds up youth by exploring topics such as self-management and leadership; purposeful decision-making; empathy and respect; career exploration; financial literacy; cultural affirmation; and individuality and uniqueness. Our goal is to have youth tap into their inner strength and unique abilities, as well as into the strength of supportive relationships, to achieve self-defined success. This program empowers groups of young people in 6th through 8th grades.

For high school students (Coming Summer 2023!) Increasingly, we understand that the inheritance of knowledge is a powerful tool in affecting life outcomes. Even when young people are positioned to make educational or career gains, the lack of knowledge of certain life skills can hold them back. Intertwined hosts a summer work simulation that helps students build self-confidence, develop key workforce and life skills, and identify opportunities to improve their communities. The work simulation is coupled with innovative workshops that empower these young people to achieve and retain self-defined success. 

 

Workshop topics include personal financial management; effective self-presentation; career exploration and entrepreneurship; mental wellness; cultural affirmation; and supporting inclusivity. This summer program enlists high school students ages 14 to 16. 

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!
