Event description

Description

THIS IS JUST A TEST--NOT AN ACTUAL EVENT. DO NOT REGISTER FOR THIS.

Become a Better Choices, Better Health© SD Lay Leader to help people better manage their chronic conditions and lead healthier lives. No healthcare or teaching experience is required. In fact, many leaders have a chronic disease themselves and have attended the workshops as a participant.

Why become a leader?

  • To teach people skills that can make a difference in how they live their lives
  • To work with other facilitators in your community
  • To learn proven methods to apply to other areas of your practice/life
  • To improve leadership, teaching, and group facilitation skills

Here’s what’s involved in the training:

  • To become a Lay Leader you will attend a 4 day training session and agree to a minimum two-year commitment.
  • You’ll receive a leader manual and complete training activities identical to those taught to workshop attendees.
  • You’ll learn how to implement and administrate the program and complete a set of practice teaching assignments.
  • All materials, handouts, supplies, and lunch/refreshments for the 4 days of training will be provided.
  • Lay Leaders often register in pairs since all workshops are co-facilitated by 2 leaders. It is best to have 2–3 trainees for a smaller community or town.

Post-training requirements:

  • As a Lay Leader, you must co-lead a workshop within 6 months of completing leader training and commit to facilitate a minimum of one full workshop each year.
  • You must attend refresher sessions periodically to maintain certification.
