Creative Facilitation Skills for Youth Are you a youth between the ages of 12-16 who enjoys working with groups, helping others develop new skills and learning? This is the workshop for you! Participating in this 2 day workshop will further develop your skills and passion for facilitating, give you an opportunity to connect with other youth facilitators who are also motivated to build their facilitation experience, and provide you with lots of fun doing it. Workshop facilitation and working with groups is a creative challenge. The key to good facilitation at any age is setting up an environment that allows all participants to be part of a learning experience, where ideas and information flow effortlessly amongst everyone in the group. Facilitators are there to guide this process along, providing an interactive and fun approach to learning.

Join us and learn:

  • A step-by-step process for setting up your program for success
  • Communication skills that create a safe and supportive environment for learners
  • How to design and deliver effective workshops using the “pillars of facilitation”
  • Strategies for engaging full group participation
  • A toolkit of activities to build confidence and community connection in groups of all ages

Cost: $15
