WYP1609HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2015  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2014 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

At the core of every community developer is a commitment to transformational teaching which unleashes within people the competencies to change their local community. Individual and group learning is possible when community members are treated with respect, feel safe to explore new ideas and can readily apply new learning to their present context. Based on both the theory and practice of adult learning and the biblical principle of discipleship, participants will  develop their personal capacity to facilitate both trainings & meetings and design workshops to move the community a step closer to peace and well being.

This course is also valuable for lay and ordained leaders in the church who may be called to lead adult Christian education courses, focus groups or other organizational meetings.
