Join Next Boost Storytelling for Change Cohort: Flexible Virtual Training for National & Sub-national Immunisation Professionals

Learn More
Are you a subnational or national immunisation professional …

…responsible for engaging with different stakeholders?

….looking to have a better engagement with your community?

…convinced that change is possible?

⏩ If so, then Storytelling for Change – an introductory, self-paced virtual course designed to strengthen your skills around generating public emotion, values and action – may be the right course for you.

 

What will I learn?

 

Offered by the Boost Community, in partnership with People Power Health, Storytelling for Change is grounded in the practice of social movements and activism.

By the end of the training, you will:

·   Understand how storytelling and narrative can influence people’s emotions and actions

·   Be able to develop a personal story to motivate people and institutions to support immunisation activities

·   Learn how to create stories that will empower your community to act together

·   Connect with a peer network of like-minded activists

Listen as Musa Joshua Aboi, a sub-national field monitor who supervises 52 health facilities across Kaduna State, Nigeria, shares how he applied the skills he learned from the Storytelling for Change course to reach vaccine-hesitant health workers in his community.

 

How does it work?

 

CHOOSE YOUR OWN LEARNING JOURNEY

This year, we are offering two different pathways to complete the course:

a LIVE Track and a SELF-PACED Track.

For the LIVE Track, Boost will select a small cohort of individuals, who will follow along the virtual course for five weeks starting on with the guidance of seasoned storytelling experts and support from peers. Individuals in this select cohort will be expected to attend weekly live sessions, complete weekly assignments and present their final narrative. Individuals who attend all live sessions and complete all assignments will be eligible for a Certificate of Achievement.

For those who are short on time, the SELF-PACED Track may be a better fit for you. Individuals who apply to this track will be granted access to the course via the mobile app, EdApp, starting on Monday, June 24. Each week, Boost will release one module to course participants. Besides full completion of each module, participants will be asked to submit one final assignment to earn a Certificate of Completion.

The chart below outlines key features of each Track:

 

How do I apply?
Please fill out this short application by Saturday, June 15, if you’d like to join us for this inspiring course. Please note that the course will open Monday, June 24.

NOTE: Space is limited for the LIVE Track so consider applying early!
