Train the Trainer Registration

Our Train the Trainer Program offers in-depth and personalized instruction in the Sources of Strength program. As Sources of Strength is a highly-effective, evidence-based program, it must maintain its integrity and fidelity through careful selection of Trainers.

Certification Requirements

    • Participate in a four-day Advanced Skills Session Training.
    • Observe at least two school trainings (if possible).
    • Provide at least four mini-trainings for colleagues, staff, students, or a local group.
    • Co-train at two Adult Advisor trainings and two Peer Leader trainings. 
    • Train without a National Trainer at least two school trainings.
    • Commit to providing training in accordance with Sources of Strength protocols in a safe and ethical manner.
    • Provide your own transportation.
    • Maintain open communication with the Sources of Strength National team.

If you are from a smaller school system or region that cannot provide six training opportunities in 12 months it may be more cost-effective and reasonable to have one of our national trainers provide the training in your area.

Eligibility Requirements

    • Must be age 18 or older.
    • Must have previous training experience.
    • Suggested: Should not have experienced the loss of a close family member, friend or acquaintance to suicide within the last two years.
