Take the lead.  

The Weikart Center’s Capacity Building opportunities are designed to train organizations to lead continuous improvement efforts on their own. If you’ve been through the YPQI trainings and want to develop the skills to lead the YPQI, you’re in the right place. 

Each Capacity Building workshop ends with Weikart Center certification or endorsement necessary to lead the YPQI independently and at scale.
