Build Your Own Trusted Spaces

This 2-day Building Trusted Spaces®, Training of Trainers (ToT), offers a transformative approach to engaging school communities at the county, district, school, or organization level to build relationships that heal so learning can happen naturally. 

Join educators and educator trainers for a transformative training program brought to you by All It Takes, the producers of A Trusted Space® film series. This experientially engaging Training of Trainers program will support education ecosystems in redirecting the social, emotional, and mental health challenges that are growing exponentially today. The training prepares educator trainers to facilitate training in their own networks by supporting those in direct service to students to embrace their role as builders of atmospheres where healing and learning happen naturally.

The Power of Trust

Research speaks loud and clear: trusted relationships are essential for social, emotional, and mental well-being. Our training turns this knowledge into real, actionable skills. Trusted relationships serve as the antidote to the stressors faced by youth and adults. They nurture resilience, efficacy, responsibility, compassion, empathy, and positive decision-making skills, while fostering fundamental identity development. Educators often need more training and experience to navigate these emotional times with their students. Our program fills this gap, helping educators do it effectively.

While good intentions are common, students' experiences can differ. Recognizing this disconnect can transform the dynamics in a classroom and the overall campus culture.

Building Trust

The essence of social-emotional learning (SEL) thrives in trusting environments when it is embedded into all interactions with our youth and one another. Genuine SEL integration into interactions is essential, but it can be challenging to achieve.


Shifting paradigms, mindsets, and traditional classroom delivery styles often is met with resistance. The Building Trusted Spaces®: Training of Trainers positively influences over 95% of those participating, even most naysayers.

99% agreed, "This training was timely, relevant, and valuable in my work with students, staff, and colleagues in my education community"
