Next steps for new facilitators

Next steps for new facilitators

  • Now that you’ve read through the most important tips for beginners, we hope that you feel like you’re in a good position to start practicing these skills! Make sure to sync up with your program organisers for practical next steps.
  • After your program has concluded, especially if there’s not something in place as part of your program structure, follow up with participants who seem particularly excited and promising, and, if (and only if) they’re interested, connect them with other ways to get involved with your local group (e.g. any in-depth programming for the next term/semester), and try to keep in touch.
  • We recommend that all facilitators read the rest of this guide, to get an idea of what you should be aiming for as you get better at facilitating.
  • If you’re preparing to become a facilitator for the first time, and want to practice a bit before your first session, you can look within your local EA group to find who would be willing to run through some scenarios with you, or if you'd like to set up a training workshop for your local EA group, you can contact Marie Buhl (marie@centreforeffectivealtruism.org). CEA also regularly hosts training sessions for their EA Virtual Programs and lets local facilitators join when there's space – so if you'd like to send some of your facilitators (or join yourself!) you can contact Yi-Yang from EA Virtual Programs or Marie Buhl from CEA.
  • If you think there’s something that this training should include that it doesn’t already, please contact Henry Sleight at henry@eaoxford.com
