How Training-of-Trainers Works
Participants will be responsible for travel expenses to and
from the regional Training-of-Trainers site. Upon completion
of the Training-of-Trainers program, participants will be
prepared to deliver the following:
- Faculty in-service workshops for school faculty and
staff focusing on the prevention of bias, prejudice,
bullying, harassment, and hate crimes in schools.
- Workshops for middle school student peer leaders on
preventing hate-related behaviors and hate crimes.
Requirements for Training-of-Trainers Candidates
We are particularly looking for people who have experience
working with youth (e.g., educators, counselors, youth
service coordinators, parents) and/or are currently work in
law enforcement (e.g., police officers, prosecutors,
corrections officers, probation officers). Applicants should
also have experience conducting training programs or
facilitating workshops with adults and/or youth. Ideally,
applicants will complete the training application as a Team,
with one Team member representing the law enforcement
community and one Team member demonstrating extensive
experience working with youth. Individual applications are
also invited; however, first preference will be given to
those applicants applying as a Team. Those individuals
applying alone will, if accepted to the program, be paired
with someone with complementary skills and experiences.
Additionally, applicants agree to the following:
The next training will be held in...
