Training & Technical Support

  • Training Associates Project (TAP)

    CCP's unique train-the-trainer program uses a "pebble in the pond" approach to build the capacity of participants to provide training in their local communities. Drawing upon popular education and adult learning methods, we combine leadership development with skill-based content to create an environment conducive to learning. To begin a train-the-trainer program in your area, please contact Ha Nguyen or Connie Chan Robison at 916-498-6960.
