Volunteer Facilitator

Are you an enthusiastic and skilled facilitator who is passionate about helping your co-workers? SGEU is recruiting volunteer facilitators and we’d like YOU to join our program team!

Background Information

A network of volunteers is essential to SGEU. These volunteers, known as facilitators, will work closely with the SGEU education department, labour relations officers, other facilitators, elected officials, colleagues, etc. who want information on a leadership development program or want to attend a subject matter workshop.  Facilitators need to be located in all areas of the province.

A facilitator directory will be provided. This will assist facilitators in supporting each other by collaboration on promotional efforts and workshops.

Role of a SGEU Volunteer Facilitator

SGEU Facilitators provide quality Leadership Development courses and subject matter workshops to other members of SGEU.   Along with the assistance and guidance of a Labour Relations Officer they will train participants on various topics such as: the roles and responsibilities of being a union steward in the workplace; know your collective bargaining agreement; the impacts of various labour laws and Acts that govern workers lives; provide them with the tools to become a confident and effective advocate in their workshops and much more.  You will have the use of online pre-requisites, curriculum guides, quizzes, and evaluations to maximise the benefit of an in class, interactive, informal education setting.

Who is Eligible?

Individuals eligible to become a volunteer facilitator include anyone who is a current member of SGEU, who has experience in facilitating workshops, schools, or chairing meetings and, is interested in actively supporting the program by facilitating one Leadership Development course per year after becoming a facilitator.
