Greater People offers members learning experiences in the form of classes that occur outside of a typical academic or classroom environment. Education assumes various forms, and Greater People strongly believes in the transformative power of knowledge through its program, Greater Growth & Learning. Below are a few examples of Greater People’s programmatic classes meant to empower, enrich and enlighten participants.
At certain retreat centers and designated Greater People shared spaces, Greater People participants can spend a weekend engaging in “Knowledge Transfer” workshops. Workshops typically focus on a topic or issue that contributes to personal growth, enrichment and/or empowerment. During these workshops, anybody is welcome to share his or her knowledge or experience regarding the topic. When participants enter these workshops, they are encouraged to be teachers and learn from each other.
Since Greater People encourages members to apply what they have learned in their communities and careers when exploring both personal growth and community betterment, Work-College embodies Greater People’s investment in the individual pursuit of potential and the improvement of the social sector. Work-College is a program that connects working professionals and/or worksites with students and/or interns to foster the transfer and sharing of knowledge. Students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in an academic environment in “real world” settings and gain invaluable “hands-on” learning and experiences outside the classroom.
Because Greater People recognizes and appreciates the vital role of the social sector in the empowerment of individuals and the community at large, Greater People partners with a variety of businesses, nonprofit and faith-based organizations, and other entities to link people with community resources. Greater People currently is partnered with numerous educational institutions and entities to provide its members with further outlets for personal growth. Please see below for a listing of institutions and links for how to connect to a particular institution.
