• WHAT IMPACTS HAVE SD ALUMNI MADE IN THE PAST? •

Testimonials
Quote Background

“I believe that implementation of SD enabled members of my campus to come together as a close-knit family, instead of strangers. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that embodies such diversity, acceptance, and honesty. This is how to make large-scale societal change in the ways we interact.”

Quote Background

 

“SDI was wonderful to work with from start to finish. They took the prep time to fully understand our Fellows and the training participants. The training was comprehensive, interesting and in tune with the needs of our Fellows. We very much look forward to continuing to build the capacity of Atlas Corps with our Fellows through their well-executed trainings.”

Quote Background

“I use the skills I learned through SD constantly when communicating with clients and colleagues. Being able to check biases & assumptions and open our hearts to the point where we truly empathize and understand where others are coming from is the deeply enriching gift of SD.  It is also necessary for the health of our communities and society as a whole.”

Quote Background

“My involvement leading SD was inspiring. I learned the importance of individuals’ experience in shaping their worldview, the value of listening, the necessity of being open to personal change, and the need to respect the complex intersections of people’s identities. SD has been instrumental in shaping my commitment to issues of social equality.”

Quote Background

“Sustained Dialogue has uplifted me … it gave me that empowerment. My GPA boosted dramatically my junior year. I owe it to Sustained Dialogue.”

Quote Background

 

“I was trained for Sustained Dialogue at NU in 2013. I recently used the SD model to lead a workshop where the group challenged social norms of masculinity with an audience of majority men. One participant at the end of the workshop asked how I came up with my questions and, honestly, all I could say was SD and everything it taught me. Thank you for the amazing training 2 years ago that I still use.”

Quote Background

“Turning the Page worked with SDI on “Building Authentic Relationships Across Difference” to equip us with skills and language to engage effectively with our partner schools and communities. We have used the practices in our community workshops and leadership activities to maintain that space between parents and teachers and school leaders. We enjoyed the training so much for our new AmeriCorps members.”

Campuses

Apply to be an SD Campus Ambassador

We are hopeful that you, as an involved Sustained Dialogue alum, might consider applying for a role in growing the network of campuses. We believe that you can be successful and help us meet our mission. Although many alums would volunteer, this is a commissioned role in which Ambassadors receive a percentage if target campuses sign on for the network or schedule a training. All in all, it requires an entrepreneurial streak and some people power, and we’d be helping every step of the way!

This is not a full-time position. Hours vary depending on how many schools each SD Ambassador chooses to seek to initiate. Ambassadors must be able to make calls during working hours.
