Harness the incredible power of creativity to transform your programs, classroom, or workplace. In our Creative Facilitation Training series, you’ll gain potent but practical skills and strategies for unlocking potential and purpose in youth, or groups of adults. This is big!

Research shows that when you open the gates of creativity, you allow motivation, collaboration, and achievement to take flight. Learn to create an empowering space in which transformative learning experiences can take place. Equipped with arts-infused practices and principles of group dynamics, you can be the spark that ignites potential in those around you. PYE will show you how. Prepare to be amazed by what you can do.

Peter Gindl, Centre for Excellence in Mental health

CF 1 Participant, Ottawa, 2014

“We need to do a better job of engaging future generations. PYE is leading a movement to activate the creative potential of young people from all sectors of society to build an inclusive, healthy world.”
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, PYE Advisory Board Member
