What do we receive when we purchase the ECY program?
The Empowering Confident Youth programs are laid out in an easy-to-follow 11-week syllabus. Your purchase of the middle school, high school, or college program consists of informational materials (downloadable e-content, printed materials, fun activity kits, and more) for you to share with students, parents, and other teachers, a complete instructor manual, and a student workbook. You will also have access to an in-service training or video chat to prepare you to conduct the ECY workshop.

How are we allowed to use (or not use) the ECY program?
What are the instructor requirements for the course?
This course does rely on guidance and spirited interaction with students. It is recommended that instructors be comfortable with public speaking, presenting themselves with calm authority to a group of young people, and have the ability to connect respectfully with whoever is in the class.
How long are the classes and how often do we convene?
How flexible or scripted is the course?
Another thing to keep in mind is that this is a program very much based on students finding their own interests, passions, and purpose in life. As such, any time students are enjoying an activity, are deep in a discussion, or are wrapped up in a project, go with it! There is no predetermined need to stay on track at the cost of powerful student experiences. You can adjust as needed moving forward.
