Train the Trainer Model 
The Ngambika Academy curriculum is presented as 2 day institute.  During the institute, participants will work in cooperative teams to complete an array of the activities from the Ngambika curriculum.  Participants will learn the objectives and goals for each activity, which will be provided by the Ngambika trainer.  The trainer will first model how to facilitate the activities and then in small groups and/or teams, they will be asked to brainstorm how they might facilitate these activities in their communities.  Institute participants will then be allowed to practice their facilitation skills by leading other participants through their assigned activity, using one of their groups ‘brainstorming’ ideas.  The institute will allow participants the opportunity to learn from one another during participatory workshops, team-building exercises, and group discussions. The institute will also provide participants with planning time for collaboration and partnership opportunities to hosts organize and implement Ngambika academies. Further they will be provided tools for building and/or identifying local resources and recruitment/engagement strategies for youth, families and other community volunteers.  

The Scholar Approach
Unfortunately too many youth throughout America do not have structured programs that are specifically designed for weekends and/or breaks during the school year, which keep them safe and actively involved as learners and servant leaders. The Ngambika Academy will allow youth (referred to as Scholars) the opportunity to learn from one another by participating in two day and/or week long interactive workshops, team-building exercises, and other activities. The training modules are highly interactive and participatory, while demonstrating to participants how to have fun and foster dialogue.  Additionally, using a “train the trainer” model, some older Scholars will learn how to facilitate and replicate the workshops, teambuilding exercises and refine their presentation/oratory skills.  Scholars who successfully become Ngambika Leaders will be able to support and/or work with participants to develop additional academies to engage younger Scholars within their communities.
