YWLP Facilitator Application 2017-18
Expectations for Facilitators
  • Enroll in EDHS 3891: Fostering Leadership in Girls & Women (Fall – 3 credits) and EDHS 2900 (Spring – 1 credit). Class will meet on Mondays from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the Fall semester and from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in the Spring semester. The course is a required service-learning component of YWLP and is designed to create a supportive community among the facilitators and develop students’ group facilitation skills. This is an academic course and therefore academic reading and class projects are an integral component.
  • Facilitate two hours per week in group meetings for the 2017-2018 academic year.
  • Come prepared to all meetings and classes.
  • Attend all program-wide YWLP events.
  • Support and nurture your Big and Little Sisters individually and as a group (phone calls, meetings, group activities, etc.).
