Facilitator Training Program

About the Program

Learn By Doing

The Student Facilitator Training Program is taught through "experiential learning". You'll learn how to facilitate by actually practicing techniques and watching your peers and teachers do the same.
 
That means classes are full of activity and movement. You'll rarely spend more than 5 or 10 minutes sitting at your desk. If you'd rather learn something by doing it than reading about it, this program is for you! (Full disclosure: We do have a textbook, so you're not off the hook completely.)

Program Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide students with the capacity and skills to engage in dialogue, break down barriers, open new possibilities, and serve as influential change-makers on your campuses, in your communities, and in every aspect of your lives. Our vision is to create an empowering teaching and learning dynamic through engaged, facilitative learning--and have fun doing it!.

What We Believe

  • Participating in any facilitated event is the same as being engaged in the community and thinking beyond one self.
  • Facilitation changes the way we view, engage, and interact with others.
  • Facilitation is engaging and empowering leadership that harnesses the collective intelligence and experience of all participants.
