Accompaniment begins with a long weekend of training and discernment in the U.S — PPF Learn & Discern take place twice a year, and it’s never too early to sign up!

About Learn & Discern events:
At this three-day gathering, people who are interested in accompaniment gather to train in non-violence and anti-racism, engage with accompaniment principles, learn about the contexts in which we have been invited to practice accompaniment, and spend time in discernment and reflection. You organize your own travel to the Learn & Discern event; all costs are covered while you’re there (lodging and food). Anyone who is interested in accompaniment is welcome to learn and discern in community with PPF!
Requirements for Accompaniment Service with PPF:
Participants are responsible for their own travel to the training. Once there, your expenses are covered by the PPF Accompaniment Program (but donations to offset the cost are very much needed and appreciated).
