The Council for Boys and Young Men Facilitator Training from One Circle Foundation
June 16 @ 9:00 am - July 18 @ 2:00 pm
The training provides a comprehensive course on the program model The Council for Boys and Young Men, for participants of all experience levels and solidly sets the foundation for implementing a dynamic strengths-based group approach to promote boys’ and young men’s safe and healthy passage through pre-teen and adolescent years. The training incorporates a relational-cultural framework and masculinity research practices to help participants build on boys’ abilities and create opportunities for resiliency and healthy relationships in boys’ and young men’s lives. Workshop trainers use an experiential model of learning to include lecture, demonstration, group discussion, case studies, simulation, small group interaction, and brainstorming to stimulate participants’ learning.
The subject matter relates to the scope of practice in all youth-serving sectors in its particular attention to boys’ developmental stages and needs, building participant skills to meet a core developmental need in boys for strong, positive relationships. The model is utilized in all community-based service delivery models – including education, juvenile justice, child services, behavioral, and mental health treatment. The Council recognizes boys’ strengths and capacities, challenges stereotypes, questions unsafe attitudes about masculinity, and encourages solidarity through personal and collective responsibility. Participants learn how to create a healthy and structured environment that is experiential and engaging so that boys and young men can gain the vital opportunity to address masculine definitions and behaviors and build their capacities to find their innate value and a sense of purpose – individually and collectively.
Each participant receives The Council for Boys and Yougn Men Facilitator Manual and certificate of completion. The fee for training is $420 and half scholarships are available via application https://
