The initial launch event allows participants to get acquainted with their small groups, agree to ground rules, select discussion topics & choose next meeting dates.
Food For Thought is seeking volunteer facilitators to participate in a dialogue program of the Colorado Springs Diversity Forum which brings diverse groups of individuals together to discuss challenging topics.
In this one night session you will learn basic facilitation skills that can foster respectful dialogue. Trained facilitators serve the community by participating in Food for Thought Programs:
- The Signature Program: Groups of twelve guided by trained co-facilitators meet five times in six months for dinner and conversation.
- Community Conversations: One night community discussions about a local topic.
- Partnership Dialogues: Collaborations with various nonprofits, organizations and businesses to discuss issues specific to those organizations.
A practice session will be held on Wednesday September 14, 5:30–8:30 at the Sand Creek library to review facilitation skills.
