Community Wellness Advocate (CWA) Application

In our Community Wellness Advocate (CWA) trainings, participants learn how to enhance their community's vitality by beginning or expanding a wellness ministry. They learn how to use Living Compass tools for teens, parents, adults and families to connect with their surrounding community. These trainings are for people committed to integrating faith and wellness in their own lives and helping others to do the same. Lay and clergy leaders are all welcome to attend. Communities are encouraged to send several people to be trained together whenever possible. 

The total cost of the training including lodging (single private room and bathroom) at the Nicholas Center, meals and materials is $300. Once your application is confirmed and accepted you will receive an invoice by email and may pay by check or credit card. You may also apply for a scholarship. Please contact Edith if you have any questions about payment or scholarships or any other concerns at
