Facilitator Training 2015

The NEED Project is happy to be hosting the 2015 Facilitator Conference in La Quinta, California July 12-16, 2015.
 
Thank you for your interest in participating!  This training is designed for individuals interested in joining NEED’s national facilitator team.  NEED facilitators have a unique combination of classroom experience and ability to work with adult learners in a fun and hands-on environment.  Come ready to learn and share your experience with fellow facilitators!  The training conference is packed with in depth energy content and facilitation strategies.  Participants will have the opportunity to teach/learn from each other while practicing their facilitation skills. 
 
In 2015, NEED will host a pre-conference workshop for facilitators who have not previously attended a NEED facilitator conference.  The pre-conference workshop is a required event for all new facilitators.  Please plan your schedule accordingly.
