Want to further your 21st Century leadership skills and offer your services as a trained facilitator to groups in our area? Awareness Washington County is offering Advanced Facilitation Training this summer.
The course grew out of two expressed needs for leadership in the county. The first came via a HomeTown Competitiveness county-wide survey, indicating the need for more trained leaders in the community.  Secondly, many groups  have requested a trained “outside” facilitator to work with their organization, including public boards, to help the group arrive at a shared vision or function as a performing community.
