To deliver Leadership for Life to a group of young people you must be a trained facilitator. To become a facilitator you need to participate in a one and a half day training event. These are delivered by Foróige staff and are currently being held online via Zoom.
These training events are interactive and give you the opportunity to try out some of the activities in the programme. On completing the training you will be familiar with every aspect of the programme and will feel competent in delivering it to young people.
To avail of the training facilitators must:
Have experience working with young people
Experience of facilitating programmes or learning with young people
Be committed to facilitating the programme as outlined in the manual
Be in a position to implement the programme with a group of young people
