We currently offer two programs:
- Our "Ongo" tool is a 12-week program to empower volunteers to practice self-care and create compassionate conversations. Up to 20 participants engage in structured exercises and expansive dialogues for individuals, with a buddy, and in a weekly group meeting.
- Our "Active Hope" program is a 2-hour workshop based on the work of Joanna Macy. We use experiential exercises and small group sharing to strengthen your personal connections with CCL colleagues and generate fresh insights and energy to support your climate activism.
