This intensive training opportunity led by National Sources of Strength trainers will prepare participants to become provisional Sources of Strength trainers within their own schools or school districts and will be subject to the Sources of Strength Trainer certification requirements. 

The certification process will be supported by regional and/or national Sources of Strength trainers. Trainees will be able to meet certification requirements by co-training with the certified trainers at their own school/district over a two-year period.

The cost to attend has been reduced to $1,000 per registrant and will cover training, supplies, and snacks each day. (Schools within the Healthy Teen Minds and ThedaCare project boundaries may quality for additional grant support). Each district may compensate for mileage, lunch expenses, and/or work time as individual policies allow. 

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and we will inform you promptly as admission decisions are made.
