Learning Objectives:
Ever wonder how you can better engage your group with fun and engaging activities? Wanting to learn new ways of integrating cultural components into activities? Then this training is for you!
This training will provide participants with knowledge on the theory and practice of the Experiential Learning Model, and discuss ways to integrate cultural components into experiential learning. Participants will engage in a number of experiential group games that will give them the "feeling" of the process, and walk them through the steps of facilitating the experiential learning process. Participants will also come away with next activities and games to integrate into their programs that can help engage and unify youth and adult groups alike.
The facilitator, Celeste Yazzie, is a New Mexico native of Navajo descent who currently works at the National Indian Youth Leadership Project as their training lead. She has over 10 years of experience implementing the experiential learning model and teaching and facilitating adults in the process.
Target Audience:
Certified Substance Abuse Counselors (CSAC), and other ADAD professional credential (CCJP, CSAPA, CCS).
