Facilitation for Changemakers Registration

About Facilitation for Changemakers

The STOKE Collective is running a 5-session facilitation training series oriented towards strengthening facilitation practices within existing change-making communities, groups, and organizations.


We are requiring participants register with 1-3 "partners" who all work in the same community group or organization. This is to ensure each participant has a thought-partner(s) in: applying what they take of the series to their specific context; practicing co-facilitation - a core facilitation skill; & sharing the responsibility of bringing the skills they will learn back to their organization or group. Teams can participate from anywhere in the world, as this series will be run through Zoom (trainings will be run in English).

Register by:

June 16th for the Summer series.

This series includes:

  1. Five (2.5 hours) training sessions to strengthen your skills

  2. A built-in support system (your partner[s]) for integrating what you learn into your group's context

  3. Actionable activities and prompts in-between sessions to help process new concepts and frameworks and to practice new skills

  4. A complimentary STOKE consultation/conversation for or with your organization or group

  5. 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

The STOKE Collective practices our value of "community care" by offering our work and support on a sliding scale to groups, as well as individuals. We calculate what we charge with an eye towards ensuring we can provide experiences that are crafted with intention and accessible to all those who would like to participate, while equitably compensating our facilitation team.


Having  “Institutional” Solidarity rates set higher than our “at-cost” rate makes it so we can offer accessible "Equity" rates for small, grassroots groups who are building power on the margins. We encourage you to consider what we’ve shared above as a tool for locating your group or organization on our scale below.
