We are now ready to register people for the Mpowerment Training on March 13th – 15th. This training is designed for agencies that are currently running an Mpowerment Project, or have already received funding to start an Mpowerment Project.


If you are wanting to see if an Mpowerment Project may be right for your community, please read more at

Those interested in attending this training should apply using the following link: After you have submitted your application, you will receive an automatic email from confirming receipt of your application. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder. The application deadline is March 1, 2019 and notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent out by email shortly after you apply.

There is a limited amount of space at the training, so I recommend you register right away for each person attending the training, or email me letting me know how many staff members will be attending so I can hold space for you. Your space is not guaranteed until I receive your application, and all attendees must register for this training.


The training will take place at our office located in San Francisco.

550 16th Street

San Francisco, CA 94158

Due to the smaller size of this training, we were not able to get a block of hotel rooms.  Please feel free to use your favorite travel website to find a hotel.  I recommend finding a hotel in the following neighborhoods:

Downtown/South of Market

Union Square

Civic Center

Some hotels we have used before and can recommend are:

Hotel Whitcomb

The Pickwick Hotel

Here are examples of additional hotels:

The training will start at 9:00am each day, so most people will need to fly in the day before the training. We will finish at 5:00pm on Friday, so please plan to leave some time after about 7:30pm on Friday (or the weekend). You must attend the entire training to receive a certificate of completion.

There is no registration fee for this training. You will need to make all of your travel arrangements.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Ben Zovod
