The coronavirus pandemic presents significant challenges for all of us, including for the helpers under our care. We are working remotely, have cancelled or postponed all group events through August, and are transitioning many of our trainings, certifications and events to take place virtually.
We have opened a virtual THRIVE Coffee House to provide a space to gather for connection, centering practices, and resilience tools. You are invited to join us.
We remain committed to our essential work of helping the helpers strengthen themselves and others. Please contact us or reach out to any team member to talk about current projects or explore how we might help you meet emerging challenges facing you or your organization. The need for research based human resilience skills building has never been greater and we are here to help.
Take good care of yourself and others and remember: we thrive together.

A note from our CEO
It’s hard to believe how taking action from that “not on my watch” moment years ago when my community was senselessly losing young lives has propelled our Worldmaker team through hundreds of thousands of miles traveled and lives touched across the U.S. and around the world,
This work draws from more than 20 years of scientific research, a decade of nonprofit fieldwork in communities around the globe and a robust network of human resilience practitioners dedicated to helping the helpers.
Resilience and Wellness Training and Consulting
Worldmaker International and its National Resilience Institute (US) provide resilience and wellness training and consulting to leaders and helpers in crisis response, education, military communities and organizations. We have delivered education and support to leading governmental agencies and organizations, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Department of Health and Human Services, the US Department of Education, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Victim Services, Leadership in Counter Terrorism (Australia, Canada), Wounded Warrior Project, the Invictus Games Foundation, the National Association of School Psychologists, and universities and K-12 schools across the United States.
