New School of Participatory Change

The New School of Participatory Change offers two types of online courses: cohort experiential courses and individual self-paced courses.

Cohort Courses

Our cohort courses are longer, synchronous online courses designed to foster collaboration and build relationships with other participants.

8-Weeks | Spring & Fall Sessions

Participatory facilitation lays the groundwork for broader participatory change work by making sure everyone is involved and heard throughout the process. Join us to learn how to transform your meetings into inclusive, collaborative, and innovative spaces that generate lasting, impactful outcomes.
