INTEREST GROUP FACILITATORS NEEDED

It’s not difficult to facilitate an interest group. You don’t need to be an expert on the subject. You just need to have an interest. You may want to co-facilitate a group with a friend, a partner or a colleague. CALL helps by providing an Orientation Session and ongoing support for new facilitators. Facilitating is fun, satisfying, a learning experience, and an opportunity to meet people who share your interest or passion – exactly why you joined CALL.

Members are  encouraged to discuss their ideas for possible interest groups with one of the Interest Area Coordinators. If you would like to propose a topic for a new program or interest group or become a facilitator, please e-mail the Interest Area Coordinator (see above) or program1@calgarylifelonglearners.ca. You can also propose a new interest group verbally at a monthly CALL CafĂ©.
