Staff Development Training, Evaluation & Professional Certification

Joyfields is an evidence based training, evaluation and professional certification organization dedicated to helping providers attend to the varying needs of catering to tribal citizens. Our experienced faculty provide comprehensive, tailored and respected training programs which account for native norms and traditions, making the courses more relevant and better received.

We understand that when it comes to working with nations, one-size-fits-all approaches are not enough. We recognize the fact that achieving this requires deep immersion into the culture, beliefs, and values shared by each member of a tribe. That’s why we have dedicated faculty who have immersed themselves in these areas, enabling them to create tailor-made programs for unique audiences. As such, our training programs are designed to ensure that all levels of participants are catered for—from novice learners all the way up to experienced professionals.

Our focus is on providing customized support so you can ensure your organization or team is successful in addressing the specific needs of the population it serves. We do this by:


  • Comprehensive research and analysis of tribal norms and traditions as they relate to training requirements

  • Customized trainings that help bridge the gap between traditional western practices and indigenous customs

  • Tools, resources and guidance that further develop understanding around best practice approaches for working with tribes

  • Evaluation services to ensure training objectives are met

  • Professional certification opportunities for staff who complete our courses

At Joyfields we pride ourselves on providing top-notch service while still maintaining cost efficiency—ensuring that our clients get maximum value for money paid. Moreover, we understand how important it is for training programs to be conducted in a culturally sensitive manner—so whether you’re looking for tailored solutions or general capacity building expertise, you know you can trust Joyfields with all your training needs!
