Outreach Trainer Program

We will be accepting applications for the next Outreach Trainer Program in December 2023.  If you are interested in serving as an Outreach Trainer and would like an application form, please email the Outreach Coordinator at outreach@monroeinstitute.org to receive an application form then. 

If you do not meet the essential qualifications below you may want to wait to apply until the next year. Until then you may want to consider becoming involved in the Monroe Community Groups (formerly called Local Chapter Network) which will provide excellent experience in preparation for becoming an Outreach Trainer.

Being an Outreach Trainer requires a considerable commitment of time and energy, but the opportunities for personal and professional development—while being of service to others and making a positive difference in the world—are numerous and rewarding.

Trained and certified by Monroe, Outreach Trainers play an important role in furthering our mission by providing educational services to the public, increasing public awareness of the Monroe Institute, and stimulating interest in our residential, virtual and online programs. Throughout the world Outreach Trainers introduce diverse groups of people through workshops and presentations to the Monroe Institute, our programs, and audio technologies. 

The comprehensive Outreach Trainer Program consists of three sequential phases: (1) an intensive home study phase with reading, writing, and other assignments, (2) a 6-day/7-night residential training, and (3) a mentoring period during which the trainee gives two or more presentations and conducts the initial workshop. The training program, which culminates with certification as an Outreach Trainer, is designed to be completed within ten months.

If you are interested in becoming an Outreach Trainer, please request the Disclosure Information from the Outreach Coordinator. It will give you detailed information about the training program, time and costs involved, and setting up your business as an Outreach Trainer.
