Among the essential elements of being a successful Facilitator at LifeSPAN is the ability to engage, listen to, and guide a group of people that have come together for one purpose: the focus person. Although the focus of the network is one person, the outcome of the network depends on all of its members. As a facilitator, being able to promote individual choices, foster community interaction and continuously discover common purposes within others allows the network to thrive.
LifeSPAN often has openings for part-time network facilitators. We are looking for people with life experience to help adults with a developmental disability to connect with a community and build a support network of friends. Please go to the LifeSPAN Facilitator Job Openings Page for more info and an application form or contact Beth Angelo, Network Coordinator: email@example.com.
