Join our live forums taking place on facebook on the third Thursday of every month. This interactive forum is a way to connect with a vibrant community of facilitators, youth workers, workshop leaders, and educators around the world. We’ve designed the process for optimum sharing of ideas and experience across distance.
Each live forum focuses on a specific aspect of Creative Empowerment facilitation and is led by a Partners for Youth Empowerment trainer or lead facilitator. These events are free and lots of fun.
All are welcome! If you work with groups of youth or adults, or want to increase your impact and creativity, you will benefit. Join us live on Facebook or view the transcript/recording below (scroll down to end of page).
