Facilitation for Changemakers Registration
About Facilitation for Changemakers
The STOKE Collective is running a 4-session facilitation training series oriented towards strengthening facilitation practices within existing change-making communities, groups, and organizations.
We are requiring that each group send two individuals to participate, or to register with a partner. This is to ensure each participant has a thought-partner in applying learnings to their specific context; can practice co-facilitation - a core facilitation skill; & so two people can share the responsibility of bringing the skills they will learn back to the organization or group. Pairs can participate from anywhere in the country, as this series will be run through Zoom.
This series includes:
Four (2.5 hours) training sessions with small assignments in between sessions to strengthen your skills
A feedback focus group after the 4th session with trainers
A complimentary STOKE consultation/conversation for or with your organization or group
Access to a virtual community for participants to problem-solve and support one another around facilitation and more
By the end of this training series, participants will be able to:
Design and facilitate activities/meetings for their organizational context, and be able to guide others in this approach
Create a personal inventory of one’s own facilitation practice and name areas of growth and exploration
Build and utilize a collective toolbox of skills and resources to strengthen their facilitation
Contextualize their facilitation in a broader framework of popular education methodologies
Explore the concept of “meetings as makers,” as well as how meeting objectives move a group towards a larger organizational vision
Utilize a network of facilitation colleagues they can access & connect with beyond the training
