Group Level

The second level of the SLA Program is based on the Group Domain of the Social Change Model, in which we work together in small groups and communities to determine collective values and goals and then put those values into practice. The workshops and action steps within this level focus on how to develop, motivate, and encourage teams, either as a team member or as someone in a position of authority.
