Event Date: September 9, 2017
Event Time: 10:00am - 11:30am
The sponsor of the Changepurse Program, the Women in Housing and Finance Foundation (WHFF), found that the program participants prefer a learning community in which they can interact and discuss questions and issues with the volunteer instructors.
Volunteer instructors are encouraged to follow the energy of the class and not feel a need to stick to the script that is provided to them.
WHFF recommends to have two volunteer instructors per each class session. Over the eight-week course, different volunteer instructors can handle the different class sessions.
So, ideally, we are seeking a pool of volunteer instructors from which we can ask the instructors to facilitate one or more classes during the full eight-week course.
We plan to hold a “Train the Trainer” workshop just for Changepurse Program volunteer instructors in September. Here are the details for the session:
Topic: “Train the Trainer” Workshop for Changepurse Mentors
Location: Neighborhood Health Clinic, 6677 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria, VA 22306. We will be meeting in the ground-level conference room accessed through the back entrance of the building.
Date: Saturday, September 9, 2017
Time: 10:00 – 11:30 am
Once the training is completed, we’ll launch into the eight-week course by the end of September. (We haven’t established all the meeting times, but we’ll do so soon).
