THE (good to have) PROBLEM:
For seven beautiful years, Melody taught Soul Restoration at Brave Girl Camp to groups of about 23 women at a time. We have been privileged to be part of this transformational experience for hundreds of women, and we have been humbled and heartened as we’ve followed our beloved Camp Graduates as they have moved forward in their lives using their Soul Restoration tools and the truths that they learned. Because it’s impossible for every woman who wants to take Soul Restoration to come to camp in Idaho, we also have it available as a beautiful online course as part of Brave Girl University. But….
We truly believe that everyone needs to experience it in a LIVE setting at least once in their lives. It’s not possible for us to personally teach Soul Restoration to every human being across the world….it’s best taught in small groups, and we want as many people to be able to have this course in person as possible.
To teach and certify instructors who have been through Soul Restoration and who feel called to teach it and would like to take it on as a business.
It has been a tremendous honor to have spent the last 7 years teaching and polishing and perfecting this curriculum…and we are excited that the time has come to pass the torch to others so that it can spread across the world and do the sacred work that it has done for all of us. We have spent years nurturing and growing and protecting Brave Girls Club, its members, its message, its mission, and the Brave Girls brand, so taking this step has been enormous for us. We feel blessed and privileged and truly honored that you want to be part of this with us.
WHAT IT IS:
At Certified Instructor Training you will learn to teach Soul Restoration at live events… the way we taught it at Brave Girl Camp for 7 years. Soul Restoration is the curriculum that has changed lives literally around the globe. We currently have around 70 Certified Instructors who have been trained personally by Melody Ross and Kathy Wilkins to host meaningful events using the powerful Soul Restoration Curriculum. Many of these Instructors are already holding Soul Restoration events in their own ways in their own home towns. We are looking to add more Certified Instructors to this program in the coming years, and if you feel a soul-deep yearning to do this work, maybe this is for you!
WHO IT’S FOR:
Women whose lives have been transformed and restored by going through Soul Restoration and who want to share it with others. Women who feel called to teach it…because it truly is a calling. Women who would love to facilitate living room groups, weekend courses or week-long retreats, all centered around Soul Restoration, the same curriculum we have been teaching at Brave Girl Camp for more than 7 years.
WHAT WE WANT FOR YOU:
We would love to teach you everything we have learned about this work. It is even more meaningful and wonderful than you can imagine…and we can’t wait for you to experience it too.
We would also love for you to be able to turn this into a part time business, earning extra income while changing the world!
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
You will come away with a Brave Girls Instructor Certification, which means you will have the legal right to teach the curriculum we will cover in the training.
We will train you to teach Soul Restoration as a complete course in live events of your own. You will also be trained to teach some bonus modules (Truth Cards, She Did It Anyway, and Decision Maker) as add-ons or introductions to Soul Restoration, which can be taught in short sessions.
Once trained and certified, you will be able to teach the curriculum in the setting(s) of your choice: camp/retreats, in-home sessions, etc.
You will be able to plan events to teach your choice of any or all of the modules. We will give you the tools and the training….you will have the freedom to implement them as you like for your circumstances and your goals.
Here are some of the classes you can expect at BGC Certified Teacher Training:
-Step-by-step instructions for teaching the Soul Restoration curriculum (the basics of which we taught at Brave Girl Camp), including an Instructor’s Manual and your own course materials.
-Behind the Scenes: registration, websites, organizing, insurance, etc.
-Logistics: transportation & lodging
-Staffing: volunteers and employees, organization
-Hospitality: food & ambiance…creating a memorable, nurturing, safe experience
-Ideas for creating a profitable business as a Certified Teacher
-Troubleshooting: things we’ve learned in 7 years of holding Brave Girl Camps
-The Brave Girls Club brand: how we (all of us) will protect and build the Brave Girls Club brand
-Ways BGC will help support you
WHAT IT’S NOT:
A franchise or a chain. Certification is a licensing opportunity to learn and utilize our curriculum, which has been life changing and effective, worldwide.
WHAT OTHERS HAVE EXPERIENCED:
Our Certified Instructor Training began in the spring of 2016, and these new instructors have already started having events and experiencing miracles. You can see in the map below where our first group of Instructors is located! Don’t worry about there being too many instructors…with 3.5 Billion women in the world…and several million in North America alone…..there is plenty of work to do for all of us! We currently have 53 graduates of the Certified Instructor Course. Of those 53, many have become active instructors with events under their belts, others are actively in the planning process, and others have chosen not to pursue scheduling events quite yet. We plan to eventually have a network of hundreds of active instructors around the world.
Certified Soul Restoration Instructor Application Process
The process for becoming a Certified Soul Restoration Instructor is demanding and takes a high level of commitment, sacrifice and hard work. This is purposeful and intentional, but the rewards for those who complete the process are incredible and will allow you to teach this amazing course to others, even creating a business if you choose to do so.
The dream of Brave Girls Club is to have Soul Restoration taught in gatherings all over the world. As a graduate of our Certified Soul Restoration Instructor Program, you will come away with everything you need to begin immediately.
- Step One: Experience Soul Restoration in a LIVE setting (either at Brave Girl Camp* or from a current Certified Instructor)
- Step Two: Complete the online course called “Servant Leadership…Preparing to Serve as a Brave Girl Certified Instructor”
- Step Three: Submit a Written & Video Application (includes a video you will make answering questions about your experience taking Soul Restoration and Servant Leadership and your plans as a future Certified Instructor)
- Step Four: Upon review and approval, register for and graduate from Certified Instructor Training
* Brave Girls Club no longer teaches Soul Restoration at retreats. Those who are not camp alums will have the opportunity to take Soul Restoration from one of our Certified Instructors. Critical details about all of these requirements are found in the pdf linked here:

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
How to I complete an application?
You can find the free pre-application here.
How will BGC help promote my events?
We have created an online directory and for scheduled events and links to your website for details, plus a place for you to create an Instructor Profile. You can see current instructors and their events by clicking here. However, Certified Instructors are personally responsible for all marketing and promotion of their events in their local areas and should not expect or plan to fill events from the existing Brave Girl following.
Will I be able to teach just a portion of Soul Restoration at an event?
Having been through the curriculum, you will agree that Soul Restoration is a complete program and that it isn’t really possible to cherry pick portions to be taught as stand-alone classes. For this reason, Soul Restoration is to be taught as a complete course, although it can be taught over any period of time you choose.
We will train you to teach smaller bonus modules as stand-alone classes that can be completed in an evening or day.
How much will we be able to charge each participant for Soul Restoration?
Since these are your events, you are free to charge whatever you would like. However, we do have a recommended fee, which we will discuss in training. As a Certified Instructor, you will be required to purchase a Soul Restoration workbook for each participant.
What are the other modules I will be certified to teach?
o Decision Maker
o She Did It Anyway
o Truth Cards
Will there by territories assigned or managed by BGC?
No, we have no plans to get involved in limiting or defining territories or regions for certified instructors.
Is there a community of Soul Restoration Certified Instructors that I can be a part of?
Yes! You will be part of a very supportive community of instructors across the world!
What about Soul Restoration for Men?
We are now in development of a program for men. Men have already begun to be certified, and it is likely that all future CI Trainings will include both men and women. Later in 2017 or early 2018, we will open the men’s program to be taught by these trained instructors. Men will be certified to teach men, and women will be certified to teach women.
We hope you will consider joining us in this incredible movement! It is changing the the world!
