The Beyond Civility workshop is an introduction to the theory of civility and civic engagement, and why both are vital to our success as a society and as individuals.

As a participant, you will learn about these topics through a thoughtful curriculum and participate in facilitated exercises. You will be able to bring new dialogic skills back to your communities and teams to foster collaboration, promote mutual understanding, and resolve conflict.

“Mutual understanding and respect between people is something we have to keep working for.”

Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller

“This was an experience that none of those young men nor I will ever forget. By noon the day after we returned, those five young men had told most of the school about their trip to the “Mountain.” This program provided these young men something many people never see…you provided two days of peace. You showed them life outside of Pine Bluff. You introduced them to people not like them and let them know that different is ok.”
