RAFT's workshop program is designed to enrich educational programs by facilitating the practice of hands-on teaching across the curriculum.

RAFT's material-based, hands-on workshops are unique in that each workshop attendee receives RAFT materials to support implementation of the activities shared in the class.

Games can promote learning in the classroom, as well as cooperative learning on the playground. This collection of games and mixers is designed to connect students across diverse backgrounds, promote communication and enhance the classroom culture. Many of the concepts will also augment existing teaching techniques. Variations of these games are appropriate for students of all ages.

Enrollment Policy

Waitlist Policy

Due to the popularity of RAFT workshops, we do maintain waitlists. There is no charge to be placed on a waitlist, and there is no obligation to attend the class should a spot become available. Should a spot open up in a class, RAFT will contact waitlist registrants in order of registration to offer the opportunity to enroll at that point. RAFT requests that waitlist registrants do not make plans to attend a class unless they have been contacted; seats are only made available if we have received a cancellation from a registered participant.
