Ask Big Questions works with universities and organizations across North America that share our commitment to educating young adults in the habits and skills of listening, trust, and empathy that are essential to the future of our cities and states, our nation and our world. We leverage existing resources in order to achieve broad impact, by training student leaders who then engage groups of their peers in community conversation. For instance, training 25 student leaders to facilitate community conversations can engage as many as 500 students.
Our work begins by speaking with campus and organizational leadership to clarify needs and objectives, and to identify the best opportunities for engaging students in reflective community conversation. Through this collaboration we design and deliver training workshops, conversation materials, an assessment strategy, and provide ongoing support.
