YOU'RE NO LONGER WANDERING EXILES,
We are Citizens of Hope.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. We believe you will do better in the course when we all start together. For this reason, we are organizing several different sessions and cohorts that you can join throughout the year. In the first few weeks of each new session, you will have a chance to get to know your classmates. Whenever the course is in session, we will also offer weekly webinars and other features to give you additional support and learning opportunities. Join us at the starting line for the next session! (Don’t want to wait? You can get started now and finish the course at your own pace.)
Finish at your own pace
When you start the course, you can choose between two different tracks: The Fast Track gives you the option to finish in 12 weeks or less (we can help you create a custom schedule just for yourself, or you can join a cohort of other students who are following the same schedule together), while the Extended Track allows you extra time to relax and finish the course at your own pace in under a year. Need flexibility with your schedule? With both tracks, you can take as much time as you need to finish the course!
Schedule for upcoming sessions
OCTOBER 2022 SESSION: Classes for Module 1 are scheduled to begin on October 1st, 2022. HYBRID COHORTS: We will be offering in-person courses in Montana and Boston starting in April 2023, with additional courses planned for later in the year. (Anyone can join the Course Introduction to learn more and to get started right now, or send us a message for more details.)
