Participant Engagement Training

November, 13 2013
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM


 Drop-ins intentionally create opportunities for participants to be directly involved in and responsible for structured activities as well as the day-to-day functions of the drop-in. This course will examine the concept of participant engagement, the power imbalance between drop-in members and staff, and share current participant engagement approaches.  In addition, the workshop will outline ways to support and maintain a member-led group including group facilitation practices, engaging members in the development and structure of the group, and evaluating group projects. Guest panelists will present current drop-in member-led initiatives.

 Learning Objectives

  • To outline the concept of participant engagement
