More Information about FOAI:

The Force of Awesome Institute was designed to change the paradigm of prevention education and educator training programs. Its focus is on enabling educators to develop and hone both their curriculum development and analysis, and provide coaching and direction that profoundly improves their presentation delivery and ability to connect with diverse and challenging audiences. We believe that coaching and fostering analytical ability in a community of trainers to be the core of an effective train-the-trainer model, and one that has been sorely absent from our collective practice.

We are not just creating passionate orators who merely inspire; our educators will have the ability to translate their causes into purposeful, actions that may be immediately taken by their audiences.  Our combined 35 years of training experience will take your skills from good to great. Join us, become a part of the Force of Awesome!

Created by Pittsburgh Action Against Rape and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, Where We Live is a child sexual abuse primary prevention program.  In contrast to many child sexual abuse curricula that focus on teaching children to protect themselves and report abuse, Where We Live focuses on engaging parents, adults, and communities to keep children safe, promote healthy child development, and change community norms that contribute to child sexual abuse.  The training will consist of four, two-hour sessions, participants engage in active discussion and practice to build the skills necessary to intervene, ask questions, and talk with their children about boundaries, relationships, and healthy sexuality.
