In-person training, whether standalone or part of a blended learning program, provides valuable face-to-face interaction with peer learners and instructors or subject matter experts. Classroom training curriculum features evidence-based methods for most effectively engaging and providing information to an audience, from federal grantee organizations to program staff, mentors, or other personnel, including experiential activities, skills practice, and engaging visuals.

E-learning saves time and travel costs without sacrificing the quality of the learning experience. It has become an integral part of many of our clients’ blended learning programs that combine online and in-person training. Dare Mighty Things combines our clients’ and our consultants’ deep subject matter knowledge with our in-house design and technology expertise to create dynamic, self-guided e-learning lessons. E-learning can be posted on a website, provided on CDs or DVDs, or integrated into a learning management system to meet more robust tracking and evaluation needs.


Webinars are an engaging way to provide learners with the timely, flexible support and assistance they need. Webinars save time and travel costs. Viewers can access a webinar from anywhere and, despite the distance, can interact with a facilitator and with other participants through discussions, engaging case scenarios, and question and answer sessions. DMT’s webinars are designed to be flexible, dynamic, and tailored to client needs.
