  • Action Project– provides participants the structured opportunity to design, implement, and review a project aimed at creating change.   These can be done individually or in a group and should be based on a topic of particular interest and passion.

  • Shared reflection of your ACT experience- offers participants the space and place to critically examine how they have grown personally and as agents of change over the course of their ACT experience.  This reflection will be shared with a larger community and could be an ideal contribution to your career portfolio.
