THE TRAINING:

The training to become a volunteer consists of:

  • PART 1: one full day (9am-5pm) covering the broad concepts that underpin our work (gender equality, Feminism etc)

  • PART 2: covering an introduction to group facilitation and how to deliver the workshop activities. This is either delivered via another full-day, usually held a week after Day 1 (e.g. two consecutive Saturdays) OR as part of two evening sessions

You must complete all parts of Day 1 and Day 2 to be eligible to deliver our workshops.

After you've completed your training here will be an opportunity for you to sit in and observe a workshop before you deliver one yourself. We are there to support you every step of the way and we make sure that you have all the skills and knowledge you need to be able to run a fun and engaging session. Once you have joined our team of volunteer facilitators there are ongoing opportunities for training and development so you can sharpen and expand your skills.
