HOW IT WORKS

The Lifeblood Curriculum is a 12-part video-based curriculum series made up of 3 units with 4 sessions each. Each session is approximately 1.5 hours long. It is designed to empower any volunteer while creating the most amount of impact for the participants.

​The flow of the curriculum is three inter-personal workshops using the video curriculum followed by a viewing and discussion of one of the Turnipseed short films to reinforce the content previously discussed. Lifeblood can be run for 6 or 12 weeks at a time. We recommend a 6 week schedule. See sample schedule below.
