Would you like to be an Aging with Gusto facilitator?
We are always interested in knowing who’s interested in helping us expand Aging with Gusto. If you are interested in being a facilitator, read the volunteer role description and submit an application.
If you’ve had experience facilitating discussion-oriented groups and are interested in helping us continue to ignite a more positive narrative about aging, we want to talk to you.
Our facilitators act as catalysts to help participants examine their views on aging and, in many cases, experience profound new insights. According to one participant: “This is life-changing for me. I was slipping into negative thoughts about my aging. This has been a huge wake-up call. I needed this discussion.”
The Aging with Gusto facilitator is a volunteer role, but there’s a lot in it for you:
- Participate in engaging and enlightening discussions with people from diverse communities across the metro (and state). According to Sally Brown, one of our facilitators, “I learn more about myself every time I lead a session. And I have been involved in discussions about aging and ageism for more than 30 years!”
- Use your skills and talents and know you are making a difference. Don’t we all want to do that!
- Be a part of an Aging with Gusto Community of Learning, and continue to learn from other facilitators and provide mutual support.
- Do something that’s fun and fulfilling. “I just love leading these sessions,” says facilitator Joann Ellis.
We’ll provide training, a facilitator’s guide and plenty of mentoring support.
If you’re interested, the first step is to participate in an Aging with Gusto workshop. If you have already done so, you’re ahead of the curve.
