Work on Purpose Training

Friday, October 11, 2013, 09:00am - 05:00pm

Are you interested in helping students connect their purpose and their passion in meaningful work?

Then join us for a one-day, hands-on, interactive train-the-trainer workshop where you will become a certified Work on Purpose facilitator.

Indiana Campus Compact is excited to announce that in partnership with Anderson University and with support from The Levinson Center and Echoing Green, we are hosting a one-day train-the-trainer workshop where you can become a certified Work on Purpose facilitator.

What is the Work on Purpose Curriculum?

Earlier this year, Echoing Green released its innovative Work on Purpose Curriculum & Training rooted in the best life- and work-practices of Echoing Green’s social entrepreneurship Fellows. Echoing Green is now inviting college, university, and nonprofit representatives from across the country to become Echoing Green certified Work on Purpose facilitators equipped to help those they work with identify their purpose and put it into action by creating a career with impact. What’s interesting about this curriculum is that it uses the principles of social entrepreneurship to help people pursue the purpose path that is right for them—whether they become social entrepreneurs, social intrapreneurs, artist-activists, impact-driven volunteers, or choose any number of other careers.

When and Where will the trainings be held?

Friday, October 11 from 9 am – 5 pm (Eastern) at Anderson University

How much is the training?

The full day of training including all materials for your certification, lunch, and snacks is $150.

Echoing Green’s Work on Purpose program helps young professionals identify their purpose and put it into action. Over the past 25 years, Echoing Green has performed thousands of in-depth interviews with ground-breaking social entrepreneurs—from the founder of Teach For America to the founder the Freelancers Union to the founder of City Year. Embedded in their stories, we found ten principles for finding personally fulfilling work that makes the world a better place. These ten principles are the cornerstone of our Work on Purpose Training & Curriculum.

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.

The 8-hour in-person training, which is catered to the campus needs, equips faculty and staff to use the curriculum in their work with young people. The training is comprised of:

  • Three workshops from the curriculum led by Echoing Green in which future Work on Purpose facilitators experience a workshop for themselves so that they can explore their own purpose and simultaneously observe the workshop in action.
  • Training for future Work on Purpose facilitators in which participants learn the Work on Purpose ethos, strategies, and best practices for helping people identify their purpose and develop the boldness to turn their purpose into action. This portion of the training also includes time in which participants can practice leading Work on Purpose workshops and get feedback from peers and colleagues, and time for them to create an action plan for how to incorporate Work on Purpose into their institution’s current structure.
