building cultures of care
We stand for honoring the humanity of the responder and of the people they serve. We know that each responder is their own individual with unique skills and past experiences. Our training and team teaching style allows space and guidance for individuals to find what works best for them.
We stand for normalizing therapy and emotional support.
We stand against the “suck it up” mentality.
We promote consilience because when we look at a challenge from multiple viewpoints we land on more valuable solutions and therefore a multi-disciplinary approach is essential.
We are against blah, blah, blah types of training. We use immersive experiential methods to take soft and hard skill learning off the page into practical application because " I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” Confucius.
We are against focussing only on the hard skills because, to really make an impact, we need to be able to reach people.
We believe that each community is unique which requires responders to engage in different approaches, cultural humility, and reciprocity. Our training is created using data, history, policies, and cultural knowledge of the communities being served.
