Last week, Green House adopters from across the country joined The Green House team for The Green House Educator Program. This program was held at Eddy Village Green (EVG), a 16 Green House home campus in Cohoes, NY. This “train the trainer” program, enables adopters learn the Core Team Education of The Green House model, and teach it to their developing organization.
It is so important for the people who are teaching this program to actually experience life in a Green House home, and EVG has been our gracious hosts to welcome us in their world. Seeing is truly believing, and during this week long program, the educators get to know an elder, and visit the same home at various times of day. The visits culminate with the elder and the educator engaging in a meaningful activity that is created through the process of getting to know each other’s interests and preferences throughout the week.
This program has a goal of inspiring the educators to be the champions of The Green House principles, and to create that slip resistant and ongoing culture change journey in their organization. Green House adopters in this class were represented from Maryland, Massachusetts, Wyoming, Alabama, Illinois and Alaska. Their passion will fuel this movement and grow the voice of culture change across the country!
