Volunteer Trainer’s Academy Invitation

Dominique B. Burton News

Please, join us as a candidate for the Training and Education Center’s 2019 Train-the-Trainer’s Academy! This program is for Alameda County employees only.

The Academy is being planned for:

  • June 6th, 9 am to 4 pm: Facilitation 101 Skills
  • June 7th, 9 am to 4 pm: Advanced Platform Skills
  • June 14th, 1 to 4 pm: Design & Development Clinic
  • June 17th, 9 am to Noon: Mini-Presentations (Video, Practice & Feedback)

Upon successful completion of this June Academy, you will be asked to join us as a Volunteer Trainer and will be assigned a Training Mentor/Coach that will assist you with prep to facilitate your first session. For that first class, you will join your mentor/coach or another TEC trainer as a co-facilitator. Eventually when you are ready with that topic, we will schedule you to lead one session every quarter for up to 16 months.

In addition to specializing in one class, you will have the opportunity to expand to other topics and will have access to other special “TEC trainer only” developmental and learning opportunities. You will become an important part of growing the Center towards our mission of becoming the East Bay’s premier learning center.

Please fill out the 2019 Volunteer Trainers Academy Interest Form and submit it to Dominique B. Burton by May 6th at 5:00pm.
