Facilitation Training for Young Changemakers

Facilitation is a craft. And there is a lot to it! But how do you do it well? And what are the skills required to create and manage groups as the facilitator?

This training is an exciting opportunity for Changemakers aged between 18-30 to develop their ability to create, lead, manage and facilitate dynamic and effective groups, workshops or campaigns. In this day-long experiential training you will develop foundational skills in effective facilitation, and build your toolkit to better deal with challenging moments.

About The Groupwork Institute
The Groupwork Institute are internationally recognised as leaders in the field of facilitation education and training. We use simple processes that work. They are unique, highly accessible and thoroughly road tested. The Groupwork Institute was established way back in 1984, to support community-based groups and social change organisations to work effectively together. Find more about us here 

This a pro-bono project by The Groupwork Institute making this training free of charge! (It’s usually valued at $440) Why? Because we love to support good work in the world, and know what it’s like to be thrown in the deep end as a facilitator!

There will be a small registration fee of $50 for those accepted into the training, to cover tasty catering and course administration.
