A joint training is a certification or other on-site training program which is hosted by a group of organizations rather than a single organization.
What are the benefits of a joint training?
- Cost: The cost is split between the organizations so they are much more affordable.
- Time: The time/energy required to setup the training can be shared by the partners.
- Excitement: Joining with other organizations creates a fun, exciting atmosphere.
- Peer Learning: Participants from different organizations can challenge one another.
- Partnership: Build stronger partnerships with other organizations in your community.
What is the cost?
The cost depends on a variety of factors including the number of days/staff, travel expenses, etc. For example, a one day training led by two staff for five partner organizations would cost ~$1000/organization. Please contact us for a quote.

Can you give an example?
In the fall of 2014, four campuses in the Minneapolis area (Bethel Univ., Crown Univ., North Central Univ., Univ. of Northwestern St. Paul) partnered together to host a day of training for their student leaders. Here is what two leaders shared about their experience…
“By partnering with neighboring campuses, it helped ease the financial responsibility as we’re all trying to make our resources stretch. Renew’s time in the twin cities culminated with a joint training for student leaders from four campuses in the area. More than 200 students participated and it was both positive and impactful. One student said that it was the most positive conversation around diversity that she had ever experienced.”
