Facilitator Certification

Facilitator Description (Qualifications)

Local Schools or other partner organizations may choose to use existing staff to be trained and certified as Facilitators. Facilitators are certified based upon levels of training, education, experience, performance evaluations and longevity. Facilitators are selected from local areas, recommended by school officials, partner organizations and community leaders and subject to a formal interview process. Background checks are conducted on all facilitators prior to hiring.

Our program facilitators are trained to be guides, who establish a true collaborative culture. They don’t have answers; they have thoughtful, structured questions and activities. They combine the critical 21st century skills of teamwork, technology, critical thinking, innovative problem solving, and personal reflection in all discussions and activities.

Facilitators receive 4 days intensive training in the following subjects:

  • Role and responsibilities of a facilitator
  • Setting up a classroom
  • Curriculum delivery techniques
  • Classroom management
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Mediation techniques
  • Work rules
  • Reporting procedures and protocols

“Before this class…I did not really take school seriously because I was too busy doing a lot of bad stuff…out in the streets. I have learned that school is something you need and that it mostly controls where your life goes and so you should take advantage of it while you can.” “My grades are getting better and I got to play basketball this year.”—  Joseph
