Train-the-Trainer Workshops (to become a facilitator)

These workshops are two-day trainings, requiring attendance both days, and are for specific curricula. They are offered on a limited basis, move around the state, and may not return for two or more years. We are trying to have a more set schedule with a built-in rotation around the state but please note the location of these special workshops. We do NOT offer funding to cover travel, lodging, mileage, and there may be a charge for lunch.
