Join our growing community!


Fall Institute 

Join us for socialization, learning, and communication skill practice.

*Please note the change!

Fall Institute is now a TWO HOUR program!*


Fall Institute is a 2-hour session that meets in-person on Saturdays during the Fall.


Each session consists of 3 parts: a group game, a lesson, and a structured social period.


This fall we'll be working with our students to help redefine Institute according to their wants and needs. While the format may change, we will continue to put students' suggestions and needs at the center of the program.

Still on stencils?

Don't let that deter you.

Our lessons are scaffolded to let EVERY voice join in the conversation.

We believe that all individuals can benefit from rich conversation

at many different levels.

Students nominate lesson topics for upcoming sessions and vote for their preferences. Listening to our students' preferences allows us to offer more opportunities for self-directed learning, building friendships, and enjoying games of choice.


We believe learning from others is important.

We value the experiences and advice others can provide. Over the years, we've welcomed guest presenters with wide-ranging expertise to share their knowledge and wisdom with us at Institute.

But perhaps the best part of Institute is the community we've built.


The relationships our students create - mentors, mentees, learners, teachers, friends - are what they rave about. They give each other advice; make weekend plans; have serious political debates; jab, spar, and throw shade in battles of wit and humor.


And they love welcoming newcomers to their ranks.
