AWA Trainings are held in self-contained locations conducive to a positive and focused group experience.

Please check the Training Schedule for this year’s training sites. The training sites require either shared rooms or off-site accommodations, and all have comfortable meeting spaces and delicious food. Many offer silent spaces indoors and/or out.

Residential Initial Leadership Trainings are $2,250 for shared accommodations. A limited number of single accommodations can occasionally be made available at extra cost. The cost includes tuition, training materials, accommodations for four nights, meals, and one year of Affiliate status within AWA.

Non-Residential Leadership Trainings are $1,850 and the cost includes everything listed above except sleeping accommodations for four nights.

Both the Residential and Non-Residential Training Tuition include the $500 deposit required with the application.
