Intern Program
We have been working for more than a year on developing an Intern Program, with the assistance of the Canadian Embassy in Central America, which will bring Costa Rican youth to Canada. The students will develop skills and be mentored in their field of interest by professionals and they will also assist TFP in marketing the “Find Your Amazing!” school starting Jan. 2017 in Costa Rica. For more information check the TFP website “News Blog” here: http://theforerunnerproject.com/forerunner-news/

Note: We need a very inexpensive office, small apartment, or families willing to billet these 2 interns. It will bring young native Spanish speaking people (fluent in English) into your home! Most importantly, they are really intelligent, well mannered young people in their mid-20s who are excited and very grateful to have the opportunity to volunteer and learn with us in Canada!

Find Your Amazing! School Starts Jan 2017 in Costa Rica!
We have taught much of this content in various settings before, but now it will be available in one (amazing!) place, at one time. The school focuses on experiential learning, guest speakers, and mentorships within a culture of adventure and possibility. This approach will greatly enhance the effectiveness of the curriculum. Do you know someone who would benefit from these courses? Get the scoop here: http://theforerunnerproject.com/the-forerunner-international-school/

TFP Facebook
We have committed to a greater presence on FB and have been actively posting ‘uniquely Forerunner’ content about Forerunner ideas, ideals and issues. The articles, posters, and videos are short, powerful, and inspiring ‘introductions’ to forerunners who are making positive change in our world. Help us spread the Forerunner word! ‘Share’ our posts with your FB friends and give us the thumbs up (like us) here: https://www.facebook.com/TheForerunner/Project/

Forerunner Blog – Coming Soon!
We have created some great interviews with some amazing forerunners through our ‘This is Wisdom’ radio program, the ‘Forerunner Column’, and the ‘From 10,000 Feet’ blog. We are in the process of migrating that material to the new TFP website, as well as continuing to tell new stories about exceptional forerunners. The link to this material is currently ‘under construction’ but we hope to have this new blog and ‘magazine’ available in the fall.

Looking for a place to make a difference?
Do you identify with forerunners and the work of The Forerunner Project? We invite you to ‘hang with us’ and enjoy this crazy and exciting journey! Every day we are invigorated with passion, purpose, and possibility (fresh inspiration) to ‘Bring the Forerunners Together’ and to make the world a better place, one person at a time.

Now more than ever, we want and need your expertise, suggestions, network of friends, financial support, and hands and feet to make us better and more effective.

If TFP is ‘your people’….you are invited to join the fun! Let’s talk about what you would like to do to make your mark on the world! We need a retired educator who enjoys sales, and a fundraiser who enjoys networking, planning events and working with people – KNOW ANYONE?
