Co-Creating a Facilitation Training Curriculum: A Formative Evaluation
A study funded by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation was conducted to identify strategies to support high-quality facilitation in healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) programs for youth. The basis of the study is a formative evaluation of a facilitation skills training curriculum for HMRE program staff at two community-based organizations: Catholic Charities of Wayne County in New York and Youth and Family Services in South Dakota. This report explores the content-related curriculum on the following topics: Managing Energy, Debriefing and Drawing Out Teachable Moments, and Building Trust and Challenging the Comfort Zone. The curriculum and supporting resources are available for download as well as three tip sheets with key lessons from each module of the curriculum.
