The Work on Purpose curriculum prepares emerging professionals to pursue work that makes a difference in the world. The curriculum's workshops will help them:
- Uncover their personal genius and how they can apply it to the issues they care most about.
- Develop the boldness and the spirit of risk-taking required to launch a path with purpose.
- Create lives and work with meaning.
The curriculum includes fifteen workshops with multiple time variations for optimal facilitator flexibility. The workshop exercises teach the ten principles of Work on Purpose, meet the expressed needs of today’s employers, and address the top learning outcomes recommended by higher education leaders such as the Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA), College Student Educators International (ACPA), and the American Association of Colleges and University’s LEAP Initiative.
We are honored to have partnered with 200 universities and nonprofits to train over 800 faculty and staff, including many who have received Facilitator Certification. See who we're working with.
Echoing Green's engaging one-day in-person training prepares you to become a Work on Purpose facilitator. After the training, facilitators have access to our curriculum modules and engage with the Work on Purpose team and fellow facilitators around the country. Limited trainings are available within the U.S. at this time.
