Our first training event of 2017 took place last month in Kelowna. We were excited to showcase our new and improved facilitator toolkit which we’ve been working on for the last year. We’ve welcomed the feedback over the last 3 years and have finally been able to incorporate the changes into something new and different. In late May we trained 25 facilitators from 12 different organizations across BC and Alberta. We were happy to welcome several new implementation site partners as well as welcoming back some familiar faces.
The new toolkit now has 30 learning activities and recipes and over 20 physical activities. It is designed so that facilitators can ‘mix and match’ the activities that are most suited to the interests of their group for greater flexibility and engagement.
Everyone got the opportunity to lead and practice a learning activity and we made sure to take plenty of breaks whilst at the same time show-casing some of our simple fun physical activities from the program!
