Volunteer as a Facilitator
Facilitators inspire students and create excitement about the development process. Your role as a Facilitator is to challenge students to think critically about the case study issues and their specific responsibilities on the development project team.
There are two facilitation sessions, each about 45-90 minutes in length. Facilitators meet with student groups after they have developed an initial site plan in response to an RFP from the fictitious City of Elmwood. And again once plans are revised following the first facilitation.
Effective Facilitators have:
- Development project experience.
- Patience to question rather than coach.
- Time and willingness to learn the details of the project case.
Volunteers must attend a full-day training on Friday, January 17, 2020.
Facilitation sessions will be Friday, February 21 at University of Idaho and Friday, February 28th at Boise City Hall from 3-5 pm.
