Workshop Hosting

We welcome inquiries from possible GDO-R workshop host sites. Are you interested?

As host, your responsibilities include:

  • A room that can accommodate up to 30 people comfortably, with air conditioning in the summer months;
  • Light snacks (coffee/muffins) for morning/afternoon break;  and
  • Three children volunteers of differing ages between 2.5 and 6, for our demonstration, one each day.

To show our appreciation for hosting a GDO-R Workshop, Gesell Institute offers one free scholarship for a participant from the host site to attend, after 10 paid participants have registered (a value of $549).  If 20 register, you will receive a 2nd free scholarship (a total value of $1,090).

If you are interested, please contact Erin Akers, National Lecture Staff Director, at 203-777-3481 or
