Training & Development

Resilient Communities believes that social development is the cornerstone of building stronger communities for the future. An educated and empowered public has the potential to set in motion anything they can dream of. Often, youth need mentors to guide them and resources to help get them started. Resilient Communities, alongside our amazing partner associations, help empower communities by offering seminars, workshops, and trainings for youth and local associations.

Our Workshop Packages are offered in-person or virtually and in English, French, or Moroccan Arabic (Darija). Materials we provide are Facilitator and Participant Manuals, and Presentation Slides.

If your association or organization is interested in participating in one of our workshops or would like to collaborate on a workshop, please contact us at

We believe that capacity-building is important to empower individuals to be able to have the skills and resources to instigate change in their communities. This is why Resilient Communities has been focusing on providing certificate workshops to show students and young associations creative and critical thinking, and how to create, manage, and implement their own projects.

We've implemented our PDM workshop with partners in Tiflet, Sidi Sliman, Ait Daoud, Marrakech, Tameslouht, and virtually.

In general, women take fewer risks than men. This results in fewer opportunities for women and contributes to overall gender inequality. This workshop challenges participants to think about why women may take fewer risks and provides resources encouraging women to take more of them. In the workshop’s final phase, participants gain practice and confidence taking risks in scenarios they’re likely to face in their working lives.

Additionally, participants are provided with resources to explore further.

As the saying goes, first impressions are everything. In this workshop, participants learn about the importance of first impressions when it comes to networking and expanding projects. An essential part of the first impression is the elevator pitch, or what you tell potential partners and investors to give them a clear and concise explanation of your project as well as inspire them to work with you. Participants get practice in creating many types of elevator pitches, including ones for social media. Participants also practice these pitches and are provided with additional resources at the end.
