When we know better, we do better.
What our Academy participants are saying:
I came away from this workshop inspired by the lessons and by the people who shared their experiences. Stories from others helped put things in perspective and provide insight.
Because caring leads to learning & learning leads to better care.
People want to care. The Academy of CareImpact seeks to support a holistic and healthy experience for those who are cared for and for those who care.
The Academy equips churches & communities across Canada to effectively journey in community with children and families in hard places.
Explore our 4 learning streams which integrate faith values, evidence-based research & our Canadian social context:
BOOK CLUBS offer a chance to listen/read relevant content from each of our 4 learning streams and engage together in an informal dialogue.
We understand that everyone learns differently.
The Academy offers various contexts for learning to meet unique needs and preferences:
MINI-SESSIONS give an introduction to key topics and include practical take-homes that can be implemented immediately. These single session events are maximum two-hours in length.
MASTER CLASSES are comprehensive courses, typically offered over a period of weeks or months and include a certificate of completion.
EXPERIENCES allow participants to ‘live’ the learning opportunity. Examples include poverty simulation or visiting the Indigenous history of Canada through the Blanket Exercise.
STORYTELLING utilizes this powerful medium in a live format intended to spark personal and community learning and conversation in a sharing circle that follows.
RELATED EVENTS are learning opportunities offered by other organizations. Our primary goal as CareImpact is to bridge between need and opportunity. We only create something new when we are not able to find quality relevant content elsewhere.
