  • WKGAN Youth Facilitator Training

    Thursday, Feb 9, 2017 - Saturday, Feb 11, 2017

    Time: 12:00am - 11:45pm

    WKGAN is very excited to be organizing a youth program supported by BCCIC and partnering with OzGreen and their YOUth LEADing the World program to offer facilitator training in Nelson Feb 9 - 11. This facilitation training is for all folks 12 and older, with an invitation for adults to join in so that they can hold a supportive role for the youth leaders. Although there is a fee for training, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

    YLTW Facilitator Training gives people solution focused tools to tackle wicked challenges, generate a vision and innovate action plans. Facilitator training underpins the success of YLTW. The program builds capacity for local people to run YLTW in their own region. The program also helps create the glue that connects participating regions together. Facilitators come from a wide range of backgrounds and age range (youth, youth workers, government, teachers, University, professionals, parents, grandparents). YLTW Facilitator Training is a great professional development and teambuilding program and a great opportunity to re-power your energy for change.
