Being a part of this organization and community has been a deeply fulfilling part of my life for the past few years. In June of 2016 I trained with ACTIL and it has changed my life as a human and as an educator. If you are looking to sharpen your skills on leadership, and even more specifically looking to mentor with a purpose, I cannot say enough about how truly incredible this organization is.
As an educator ACTIL taught me the skill of teaching from the heart. The power in telling personal stories and things people can relate to. I have realized the mode of training not just the head and hands but more importantly the heart has great power to change people's mindsets and hence their lives. For me, it transformed how I deliver education. So grateful always for the opportunity.
