Agencies We Have Trained
Global Mission Readiness’ training format is “train the trainer.” Meaning that we teach the students how to teach their peers the information that we are teaching them. That way our information has a broader reach. A typical class has 4-10 agencies from the region and 25-35 students. We facilitate cooperation and working together to make a difference in the communities.
