Dignity Serves: Train the Trainer

This training is for those who have completed the regular Dignity Serves Training and are wanting to be certified to train others. Participants are provided with the Leader’s Guide that has additional information on each of the principles and how to guide others to come to their own conclusions and applications by exposure to the materials in the proper setting. This is the art of facilitation and this new skill can be applied in a variety of contexts.

Dignity Serves teaches a powerful new paradigm of service called ‘dignified interdependence.’ Taught from a Christian perspective, this 6 lesson study will give you a useful toolkit to apply in all areas of your life – home, office, church, and neighborhood.

Saturday, April 21st, from 2pm to 5pm. Attendees must have completed Dignity Serves prior to attending. There is a full training immediately before this Train the Trainer session if you would like to do both in one weekend (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dignity-serves-a-workshop-on-helping-others-tickets-44149878475?aff=es2).

Cost: $99

Led by Phil Hissom.

All training materials will be provided. There will also be snacks throughout the training and lunch on Saturday.
