Education &Training

Leading With Integrity and Innovation. Keeping Your Entire Team a Step Ahead.

Today's growing aging population calls for a well-informed workforce. That means continuing education—through all stages of your career—is more important than ever. We offer individual coaching on new challenges, ongoing group instruction on key topics, and everything in between.


Whether you wish to hone your management skills and behaviors, strategize or problem solve, working with a coach can help enhance your leadership abilities both in and out of the office. An experienced FSA coach will work one-on-one with you in a safe, confidential environment to help you develop sustainable strategies and achieve your goals.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion 

FSA is committed to seeking understanding and fostering conversation about diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) from a perspective anchored in values. To assist our members with DEI initiatives within their organizations, we offer the facilitation services, workshops, training and peer groups. Explore our DEI educational resources and trainings.


FSA Internship Program

The FSA Internship Program is a fantastic opportunity to introduce young adults to the possibilities of working in the senior living field. Sponsored jointly with Friends Foundation for the Aging, this program provides 8-10 week experiences for college students to live and work in a Life Plan Community/CCRC and gain experience and exposure to this industry. We work closely with several universities to place motivated students in these spots. Interns have worked in a number of different departments, including Administration, Human Resources, Social Work and Food Service. 
2024 marks the 13th summer for the program; we have placed nearly 60 interns in FSA member locations nationwide.

FSA Leadership Institute

Since 2013, emerging and new senior leaders have participated in the FSA Leadership Institute to deepen their understanding of leading in a Quaker-affiliated organization. This unique, in-depth experiential learning opportunity is designed to give leaders ways of thinking and practicing that are congruent with Quaker values. Read more.
