Mosaic Methods

The Mosaic Partnerships Program helps individuals from different social groups create bonds of friendship meant to last a lifetime.  By systematically selecting those with differing “outsides” (race, ethnicity, etc.) who are similar on the “insides” (demographics, job, ISPI results*) partner pairs are created with high potential for bonding and mutual enrichment.  Partner pairs are systematically guided through the stages of friendship from “stranger,” to “acquaintance,” to “close intimate friend.”  Through this process, friendships develop that otherwise never would have occurred.  These friendships expand into social networks that enrich social capital across racial and ethnic lines reducing the polarization of the community and creating a better society.

Appreciative Inquiry

Appreciative Inquiry (AI) can be used in many ways, to help people move towards a shared vision for the future.  This is done by engaging others into a strategic vision.  This program can be taught either in person or through online technology.
