  • Hi Deepak,

    Thanks so much for your request and for getting in touch with us. In India we often work with our partner organization Dream a Dream in Bangalore so it may be worth contacting them also. Let’s stay in touch. It would be great to see you at our next 3rd Thursday.

  • Hi there, Blown away by the amazing work you are doing. Will you ever be in Southeast North Carolina) or do you have partners in this area? If not, how can me and my company partner with you to animate the great kids of North Carolina? Thanks so much!

  • Hi Becky, we don’t currently work in your region but we would love to start up a conversation about it! We will email you

  • Awesome, Katie, yes please do get in touch. I just received the new book today FANTASTIC!!!! and I’m so excited to that I finally some creativity resources. I work with middle school girls and adult women, to engage–and in some cases reactivate–creativity–in actions and thoughts. I’ve been going this alone and I’m excited to learn about your work as it’s so much more fun and CREATIVE to collaborate. I look forward to hearing from you at your convenience. Blessings and gratitude for the good work you do AND for finding you!

  • Hi! I hope that in the near future there could be the possibility of having trainings in Montreal, Canada! We would love to have you here. I’ve been to your training while living in Toronto, and I’m absolutely in love with the work you all do! Look forward to creating new connections 🙂

  • Thanks Harleen, I will pass on the feedback to our Canada team and we will see what we can do!

  • Hi Harleen, there is a training in Ottawa that is coming up shortly:

  • Really enjoyed looking at your online resources, and have now purchased the book so am greatly looking forward to using it in my work. Will you be delivering any training in Northern Ireland or Ireland? Would love to participate.

  • Hi Jen, Great to hear from you. We don’t have any plans for a Northern Ireland or Ireland training at the moment but if you want to discuss the possibility or setting one up with us then let us know! Also, why not join one of our Facebook assemblies:

  • I read your book Catch the Fire this summer and was hooked. Just this past year we moved to a 20 acre property outside a small vibrant arts town in Central PA with the plans to host gatherings and retreats. This past year we hosted a theater/arts week for a small group of youth and want to do more.

    I’d love to take one of your trainings. Will you have any on the east coast any time this winter or spring? I didn’t see any trainings on the east coast listed on your website past Nov.

    Can’t wait to hear back.


  • Just want to second the request for a Montreal or eastern Canada training! Very interested in this. Thanks!

  • Do you ever run training in Australia or near….I would love to attend this training. I work as an artist and adventure based facilitator..use arts as a reflective tool and promoter to change ways of thinking….hahaha…hope to hear from you.

  • Thank you, Kay! We had a recent training attendee from Montreal and are trying to build our network there. Your request is noted. Hope we can meet you soon.

  • Good afternoon,
    This is phenomenal. I am so sad that I can’t seem to find anything near me. I am in Nairobi Kenya. Please tell me I can benefit from the training as well. I am passionate about youth mentorship and I have not allowed my age or circumstances hinder me. I go from one school to another talking to students about identity and personal branding. Art of Facilitation training will be a dream come true.

  • Hi. That’s amazing work you do! Will you take one in Burundi or in neighbour country such as Tanzania or Uganda? As young leader I want to attend a training workshop like this. Or can we partner with PYE organisation? has developed a network of youth-led organisations in East African Community (EAC) and in Great Lake Region (GLR), they all need such trainings.

    Thank you.

  • hey.. what is the diference between “Art of Facilitation” and “Creative Facilitation 1 & 2”

  • I recently spent a week at a festival in the UK and heard about PYE through an organisation called LIFEbeat.
    I would love to undertake some training in the uk! Would this be a possibility?
    If I undertook training in another country, e.g. India, are there businesses linked to you with which one could find work?

    Many thanks

  • Hi, Tessa. We’re so glad you came across LIFEbeat, our UK partner. Currently they are conducting all trainings in the UK (schedule here). For other countries, register for an upcoming training or fill out our training request form to let us know where you’d like us to conduct a workshop. While we don’t have any formal employment agreements with companies in India, we can put you in touch with our partner organizations there.

  • I am also in SE North Carolina! Would love a training in this area, or even in Asheville area! How can we make this happen?

  • Hi, Alison – The best bet is to email to start the conversation. We’d love to bring a training to your area!
