This course is best suited for people that already have teaching experience. We will go deep into communication and group facilitation - some previous group teaching/facilitation will provide context and a good foundation to add the social justice lens to.
SOCIAL JUSTICE Pre-Reqs:
Previous Social Justice experience and education is an asset but not required. What is required is a desire to learn, reflect, unlearn, and be challenged. A passion for making the world a better place is the foundation for successful participants.
