build a curriculum around their calling and passion, and develop skills to make their visions
realities. Students also can earn credit while interning with the Center for Partnership Studies

CIIS is in its second year of building a network of professionals with practical tools and
organizational connections to spread Partnership through action around the globe!

educational opportunity I've encountered. It presents practical, accessible and holistic solutions
to the most urgent challenges and myriad problems we face on a personal, interpersonal,national and global scale. I am excited to continue growing with this material and using it
throughout my life - enabling me to be an even more effective leader and the best social
change agent I can be."

NEW CPS WORKSHOP
Become a Real Wealth Community Presenter
The first Real Wealth Community Presenters training was launched by the Center for Partnership Studies in Seattle, Washington on November 6-8, and was a rousing success! This is a free training for volunteers who want to create the "mind shift" urgently needed at this critical time. Drawing from The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics, it is modeled on Al Gore's Climate Change Project, with each presenter committing to making 10 presentations over a year using the power point and manual developed by Alene Moris, nationally recognized trainer and consultant, and Cheryn Weiser and Sara Saltee from Strategic Learning Resources. It will be offered again next year. If you are interested, please apply. This is a chance to make a difference -- and engage others to do the same! Space is limited to the first 100 applicants accepted. For more information and to access the application, please click here:
