Webinar: Getting Your Affiliates on Their Way

This second webinar focuses on a particularly important aspect of the Boot Camp model: hands-on guided learning.  When learning a new skill and even more importantly learning how to work in a new landscape (welcome to the ‘connected age’!), you just have to jump in and do it. The same holds true for your affiliate orgs/grantees.  Realistically, they likely won’t apply new skills or use new tools if all you give them is a lecture – they need to get down in the weeds.  At the same time, they need access to mentors who can show them how to get started and amplify their success.

This session will cover ways to get your affiliates to take the plunge and apply what they’ve learned.  We’ll also focus on the importance of creating coaching and mentorship opportunities where participants can access professional guidance.

We will cover:

  • How your org can create a Boot Camp that gets participants to learn AND do.
  • How to create connections between participants and pros who can provide coaching.
  • A case study on the importance of (guided) learning by doing.
