“Instructions,” Facilitating Groups for Self-Reliance (2018)



Specific instructions for the person facilitating this training will always appear in the blue boxes under the prompt “Facilitator.”

How to Use This Manual


This manual is designed to be used as a group to train facilitators. Since facilitating groups is different from teaching, some have found it helpful to let each individual practice facilitating a section of the materials for this training. If you would like to use this method, look for the prompt below. It will be a reminder to allow someone else in the group to facilitate the next section.

If you assign a timekeeper and stay with the time amounts that are listed, this facilitator training should last less than two hours.

Plan to bring several of the self-reliance course manuals to help you complete one of the group activities later in this training.
