Around the Table Facilitator Training (Includes Sample Curriculum Bundle)

Around the Table Facilitator Training (Includes Sample Curriculum Bundle)


Description:  This unique training will equip participants to facilitate the Around the Table curricula, which aims to increase the health and resilience of the communities you serve.  Participants will:

  • Learn how to implement the Around the Table curricula
  • Explore the relationship between positive and adverse experiences and nourishment
  • Develop compassionate facilitation strategies
  • Engage in personal and group reflection

Audience:  Educators working with older youth/young adults and/or adult caregivers. [If an agency has multiple participants, each participant must register separately so that their registration email address can then be added to our online training system.]

Training Delivery and Dates:  This program includes self-paced content (videos, reflection activities, and readings) and live, instructor-led sessions. Registered participants will gain access to our online training system (TalentLMS) beginning mid-October and will need to complete approximately one and a half hours of self-paced work prior to the first live session on 11/9.  Participants will have access to digital curriculum files and will also be sent an Around the Table Curriculum Bundle (includes a Youth workbook and instructor guide and a Nourishing Families workbook and instructor guide).  Key dates are as follows:

  • Registration Closes: 11/8
  • Self-Paced Course Opens:  mid-October
  • Live Zoom Sessions: 11/9, 11/16, 11/30, 12/7; Times: 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m. PST

NOTE:  Although registration will remain open until 11/8, participants who register after 10/9 may not receive the hardcopy curriculum bundle until after the first session, in which case participants will have to rely on the digital curriculum for reference.

Total Training Time:  Approximately 12 hours total (six hours of live sessions and about six hours of self-paced work)

Next Steps:  Upon completion of this program, participants are certified to deliver the Around the Table Youth and Around the Table: Nourishing Families curriculum.
