21st Century Skills

TAI has identified nine key 21st Century Skills for Success that all students need – not just to thrive in college, but also to thrive in life. Training attendees will receive the latest curriculum and learning materials designed around these skills and work together on further exploring the needs of students in the 21st Century.

New in 2017:

Fully Redesigned Teacher's Manual

Standard and Deluxe training registrants walk away with a 400-page Teacher’s Manual. This guide is full of more than 60 hours of activities and lessons, which you can use to help teach, empower, and motivate the next generation of changemakers. This manual is newly updated and improved for 2017.

The TAI curriculum has been the industry

standard in transformative education

for over 10 years.

This is a dynamic experience where you will be immersed in our highly engaging learning environment. And it’s based on an award-winning model of education that has spread all over the world, including to many of Ashoka U’s changemaker campuses. Indeed, this program recently won the “Innovation Award Hall of Fame” recognition from Ashoka U and the Cordes Foundation for its high impact curriculum.

We have never experienced anything as powerful as the Transformative Education Summit. [This] is the single best experience I could recommend for any educator, social entrepreneur, or concerned citizens serious about transformation on both individual and institutional levels.

Because of TAI, I am more resilient, bold, and innovative leader and entrepreneur. As a result of the lessons I learned through TAI, I was empowered to make a bold commitment to start Sword and Plough and incorporate social impact in every step of our business model. This exciting process has helped me in my life as a social entrepreneur every single day.

Emily NunezCo-Founder and CEO, Sword and Plough

Scott Sherman has created a curriculum designed to effectively bring out the creative potential in all those lucky enough to take part in his courses. On a personal level, Scott helped build the Unreasonable Institute, changed my life, and has forever been a cornerstone to our work at Unreasonable.

Daniel EpsteinCo-Founder, Unreasonable Institute

The principles of TAI have been foundational to Educate! and our curriculum in Uganda, which currently reached 25,000 youth across the country. Having been both a student and facilitator of TAI, I can say with complete certainty that it has been one of the great privileges of my life to be introduced to Scott and the principles of Transformative Action.

Eric GlustromFounder, Watson University and Educate!

When Echoing Green first considered the creation of an activity guide that would equip faculty and staff at colleges, universities, and nonprofits, we went straight to TAI. Though it has evolved over time, TAI's contributions remain the backbone of our Work on Purpose curriculum, which is now being used by approximately 800 faculty and staff at nearly 200 colleges, universities, nonprofits and, most recently, corporations.
