FAQs

TTI works across the United States, providing in-person, virtual and online trainings.  Our office is based in Philadelphia, PA, but we have training team members across the United States, and we can come to your location for in-person trainings.

Thanks for your interest in working with us!   In order to schedule a training or consulting need, please contact us, and our Training Coordinator will reach out to schedule a time for us to talk.  During that call, we will ask you a few questions about your audience, needs, goals, timeframe, and budget, and we will tell you more about our approach to this work to see if TTI is a good match for your needs.

Information that will be helpful to have in advance of our call, if possible:

  • Reason for the training/consulting and related goals
  • Information about the potential audience and venue
  • Potential training dates / timeframe for implementation
  • How much time is available for a training session
  • How many people will be attending the training
  • Your budget

While our training schedule varies, we typically need about 4-6 weeks lead time for most training requests, (but as much as advanced notice as possible is always welcome!).  This gives us enough time to accommodate our trainers’ schedules, complete the contracting process and develop the curriculum for your training.  If you are looking to work with one of our Senior Training Team members, please note that they often book a few months and up to a year+ in advance.

Please note that certain times of year, such as P/K-12 professional development days, and the start of the academic calendar, we are often approached 6 months to a year or more in advance, so we encourage you to reach out as far in advance as your able. 

TTI believes that the best trainings are those that are customized to your site, audience and needs.  Accordingly, we do not have a list of training options to choose from.  Instead we will talk with you to learn more about what you are looking for, and will create a customized training plan specifically for your site, audience and needs!

Here at TTI, we understand that everyone has different budget constraints and opportunities, and we do our best to work within a range of organizational budgets. Once we learn more about what you are seeking, the related logistics and your budget, we will match you with a member of our training team that matches your budget and needs.

Please note that while we understand that there is extensive need for trainings and that not all organizations are able to budget for such needs, TTI holds a core value of providing fair compensation for the time, energy and expertise of our training team, and we are currently unable to accept requests for work without compensation.

 

Thanks for your interest in joining the TTI team! TTI is a relatively new small business, and we are working on growing sustainably.  We only hire new trainers when we have enough work to support bringing on additional team members.

We generally request that anyone interested in potentially working with TTI to attend one of our Training of Trainer courses.  This allows us a chance to get to know you and your work, and for you to learn more about TTI/our approach to this work.  (Scholarships are available for each TOT for those who cannot afford to otherwise attend.)

All TTI team members must be committed to personal and professional growth around dismantling the oppression of all marginalized peoples, and be prepared to call attention to and uplift other marginalized communities within training sessions and related work. For the immediate future, TTI is prioritizing hiring people of color, both transgender and non-binary people of color as well as family members and loved ones who identify as trans-affirming, and transgender women, non-binary individuals.

Please note that all TTI team members work on a sub-contractor (1099), project-by-project basis, so a flexible schedule is a must, and we are unable to guarantee any team members a certain amount of work or income.
