Socialist Night School Facilitator Training
March 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
As you may have heard, the Political Education Committee is organizing a second season of Socialist Night School with a first session penciled in for March 21st with plenty of further sessions to follow. As part of that effort, we are looking for people to volunteer to act as small group facilitators during small group breakout portion of the night school sessions.
The role of the facilitator is to make sure that discussions of the night school content stay on track and are welcoming, rewarding, and edifying for everyone in the discussion. This role is not about being an expert on socialist theory and history, instead it is about being able to ask good questions and provoke healthy discussion about that content in an effort to help everyone develop ideas and perspectives on the topic-at-hand together.
Beyond helping make the night school a successful program for chapter self-education, facilitators will also help model the types of conversations and interactions centered on socialist ideas that we need to have to transform socialism into a mass movement.
If you think you’ve got the skills to be great facilitator please attend the training on Tuesday March 12th. If you are not sure or would like to develop your ability to facilitate, please be in touch also as we will be running training for the experienced and inexperienced alike prior to the night school.
