Ask your HR department to support you and bring your learning back to your work and train others!
The DSIL Course is a professional development course with a certification, so many of our Alumni come with the support of their companies who see the value in increasing these competencies. All of what you learn will be transferable to your project teams and organization at home. Try something else besides traditional one-day training where there is little interaction and explore how that affects the depth of your learning and daily practice. Besides, there is learning in simply traveling and being open to something new!
Crowdfunding is a powerful tool that opens new opportunities for giving and receiving!

Give a little more to support someone else in joining.

Get going early and be a recipient of a global grant!
There are initiatives around the world who strongly believe in empowering people through education and are looking to financially support motivated individuals in the areas of innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership. Get out of the house and go talk to people, do a google search and make a phone call, or get curious about your local Rotary Club, Americorps Grants, and other orgs around the world to see where you may build connections! We have some more ideas that may pave a way here.
