An online course to give workshops using the Maac Method.
Learn the step-by-step program
and concrete tools to empower others today.
What you'll get
Empowerment, self-determination, autonomy… Few professionals doubt the value and importance of these concepts, but many find it difficult translating that understanding into action.
Our approach is based on the idea that it is often easier, and more rewarding, to help others than help oneself.
Where will you lead workshops?
Health & Social Services
Helping others is empowering, and often under-used with 'vulnerable' populations. Maac offers concrete tools to social workers, psychologists, and other support professionals.
Youth & Education
Discover a new kind of service learning with lesson plans, exercises, and discussion topics that draw out young people's (often overlooked) altruistic motivation.
Businesses & Organisations
Maac is unique in allowing all employees to find a personalised project with impact. We offer a suite of easy exercises adapted to the work environment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Done over six 90 minute Zoom sessions, the masterclass includes the theoretical background behind Maac, a description of the 18 exercises that make up the Maac Work Program, and discussion.
- Theoretical background: Self Determination Theory, Altruistic Motivation, Behavioural Change
- The Maac Work Program: The 18 exercises, suggestions for running a group, additional tips for smooth workshops.
- Discussion: With a small group of diverse, but like-minded people, discussions are often the richest learning experiences. Here we share ideas of why certain exercises may work better in certain situations, possible hiccoughs, and other ideas.
After attending the Masterclass, you are not left on your own! The masterclass can feel like a lot of information to digest and apply effectively. Many coaches feel reassured that they only need to prepare for their first workshop, which is followed by a debriefing session with Evie or Matthieu, to discuss issues, questions and reflections that came up. Because we are still small, we are able to do personalised supervision for our first coaches who sign up. This will no doubt shift into small group drop-in meetings as Maac develops.
We hold weekly online drop-in meetings. These are helpful to share questions and best practices with other coaches and feel a part of the Maac community.
- Facilitator Manual: This is your personal workshop guide, with a description of the 18 exercises, including Objectives, Background, Procedure, Instructions, and Additional Tips. Available as a pdf, or as a hardcopy upon request.
- Participant Workbook: To make the exercises easier for your workshop participants, this includes worksheets for the exercises, and space for taking notes and exploring ideas. Available as a pdf, or as hardcopies upon request.
- Slide Templates: We provide you with a deck of slide templates to make preparing your workshops easier. This includes Introduction, Objectives, Instructions for each of the exercises, as well as links to videos and other material.
We regularly update exercises and add others. We also plan to create videos of additional theory and an online resource library; all ‘early-adopters’ will have full access.
