|Facilitating Voices' dialogues
A key element of our dialogue program model is the presence of two trained facilitators in each group. These facilitators blend their content knowledge, small group leadership, teaching and own identity experiences to the goal of keeping the dialogue going, on topic, on time and inclusive (making sure all participants have the opportunity to participate).
- Apply your passion for social justice education, diversity knowledge and teaching/facilitation experience
- Commit to facilitator training, weekly preparation with your co-facilitator and the five dialogue sessions
- Select your own dialogue meeting time based on your and co-facilitator’s schedule
- Gain marketable training/teaching and facilitation skills, and topical content knowledge
- Grow in your own understanding of self, others and social issues
- Extensive curriculum and facilitation training (Winter 2012 training was all day, Saturday 7 January))
- A core, developmental curriculum of activities on which to build weekly dialogue
- Logistical support including: preparing materials, booking rooms, coordinating food for each session, etc
- A professional letter for your portfolio, documenting your commitment and contributions
Voices facilitators are now drawn from participants in our Train-the-Trainer (TOT) program, currently being piloted with graduate students. We will post information about and open applications to the program for Winter/spring 2013 cohort.
If you have additional questions, or would like to be notified when applications are opened again, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
