“The past may dictate who we are, but we get to determine what we will become”
ACT believe that training and education are key components of capacity building for individuals, organisations and communities to transform and sustain peace.
As such, ACT members complete an initial training programme which is delivered over a 12 week period. This training starts with the individual through self-reflection and self-development processes and ends with the positive contribution they can make within their communities and society at large.
Training is delivered in an environment which is safe, comfortable and conducive to learning. The facilitator(s) work with the male participants, covering a number of teaching modules from self-awareness, group dynamics and restorative practices to positive leadership roles. Participants are encouraged to discuss their real life experiences, which enables them to explore their role in the past, in order for them to look forward.
