2021 is virtual

Virtual/Hybrid Programming Model:

A Facilitation Overview

December 2nd, 2021 – 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Presenters: Rabia Minhas & Kyle Graves

Join the Centre for Dreams for a deeper dive into the new programming climate of virtual and hybrid facilitation. With the reality of COVID-19 making in-person programming limited or not possible the adaptation to new virtual and hybrid models of programming has become the “new normal” for agencies all over the country. These models come with their own set of barriers to overcome and techniques for staff to familiarize themselves with before launching virtual/hybrid programs.

After more than a year of conducting programming like this we would like to pass on our knowledge base. Participants will see how we met this challenge and take away ideas for their own virtual/hybrid programs. A workshop for managers, supervisors and DSPs.

Cost: $50 for OADD members, $75 for non-members
