Let me start by saying, “You gotta go.”
By now, you’re asking yourself: “Where do I ‘gotta go’ and why?” The where is the 2018 Train-the-Trainer (T3) weekend. And there are 3 key reasons why:
If you still aren’t sure about attending, here are some comments from participants who completed the T3 weekend last fall:
“Attending T3 was a valuable opportunity to develop our training program design, facilitation skills and network with leaders and trainers across AMC chapters. We appreciate the relationships, partnerships, and friendships we have formed with AMC staff and volunteers. As the chapters work together to improve their leadership trainings, experiences in the outdoors for everyone will get better and better!” Barbara Beatrice, Delaware Valley Chapter Leader Trainer and 2017 T3 graduate.
“With T3, I now have the tools and skills needed to return to my chapter and help develop the next generation of well qualified leaders.” Jeff Mayes, Worcester Chapter Leader Trainer and 2017 T3 graduate.
“We use direct and collaborative learning at T3, but the greatest benefit to attending is learning how other chapters train new outdoor enthusiasts.” Mark Warren, Boston Chapter Leader Trainer and COLL Faculty Member.
Please consider joining us on November 2-4, 2018 at Prindle Pond Conference Center in Charlton, MA. Details can be found here. I look forward to seeing you there!
