Approach of Workshops:

Attendees at Toolbox Training workshops can expect something to meet the needs of any kind of learner. You’ll have chances to get up and move around, join in whole group discussions, and participate in small group activities. You can play with toys, listen to music, and write notes in a workbook you take home. You’ll reflect on what you’ve learned, create a plan for what you will do with what you learned, and take home a certificate to verify your training hours.
