As a volunteer organization, we are always in need of trainers to help provide the most accurate information to our new leaders. If you enjoy working with adults and love Girl Scouting, this is a great way to volunteer. Trainers are needed in all areas of the council to bring training closer to our volunteers. Train the trainer events are scheduled several times a year and rotate locations.
The next Train The Trainer will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm in Colorado Springs.
This is an 8.5 -hour course to prepare volunteers and staff to become Adult Trainers for Girl Scouts of Colorado.
In order to become a Girl Scouts of Colorado Trainer, you will need:
1. a completed volunteer application
2. a completed background check (current leaders should have this on file)
3. to schedule an interview with Maureen Lienau, prior to attending this training
By the end of the session, participants will be able to describe at least 5 basic skills and knowledge needed to facilitate adult learning. The content will cover:
. Definitions of Adult Learning
. Roles and responsibilities of a Trainer
. Traits of a Successful Trainer
. How adults and groups learn
. Learning Preferences
. A sample of one GSCO Training design
. Managing group and individual behaviors
. “Must Dos” for a Trainer
Saturday’s materials, lunch, and snacks will be provided for a cost of $30.00. Please note in “Comments” any food allergies or avoidances or other ways Council Staff may accommodate you. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
