TISSAM Training
Training is highly recommended for the TISSAM program. Teen Futures Media Network, College of Education, University of Washington, has been conducting training for TISSAM teens since 2004. Everyone involved in each of the TISSAM community and school groups first received training from Teen Futures.

The one-day TISSAM training sessions are designed to include both teachers/adult leaders as well as the teens that teachers have designated as their TISSAM presenters prior to the time the training has taken place.

Teen Futures is now able to extend the offer to train teachers/adult leaders and teens in your local area. In this tight economy, the most cost effective way for Teen Futures to bring this one-day training directly to you is to offer the training in the following manner:

Cost for training:

$150 per teacher/adult leader. Special Note: This offer can only be made to groups of 10 or more adults.

This basic fee includes:
  • The opportunity to bring with you the group of teens you have designated as potential TISSAM presenters
  • The TISSAM curriculum materials ($75.00 if purchased separately)
  • Travel expenses and per diem for 2 University of Washington presenters (expenses negotiable dependent on location)
