National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI)


The National Coalition Building Institute is an international leadership training organization. NCBI trains leaders from all sectors of society to effectively  address prejudice and discrimination within their institutions and are dedicated to welcoming diversity and strengthening connections among people. NCBI workshops are interactive and staff members of the Massasoit community are trained facilitators to present diversity and conflict resolution workshops.

What Can I Expect in an NCBI Session?
The workshops are interactive, experiential, high energy and can be tailored to your particular class schedule. Participants are both teachers and learners.

In our workshops, we:
• Celebrate differences and similarities
• Identify misinformation about other groups
• Learn ways to challenge hurtful comments and actions
• Learn to become allies to groups to which we do not belong

How do I request a session?
You select the class date and time for the session to take place. Once your request is submitted, a team member will contact you to discuss the guidelines for the session. The team member will also answer any questions you may have.

Note: We ask that you submit your requests with a minimum notice of two weeks so that we are better able to accommodate the time/day you desire and tailor the workshop to your particular students.”
