The work of public engagement relies on experienced, flexible facilitators. We support facilitators in our network with a focus on skills and strategies for helping all voices to be heard and connecting with other NH residents who are invested in proactive problem solving. We are proud to support a network of over 200 facilitators who have trained to serve in New Hampshire communities.
People who serve as facilitators for NH Listens follow a pathway from participation in an event, attending a training, to serving as a recorder, to co-facilitating a group and finally facilitating their own group. We provide feedback from participants after each event and share feedback with one another to continually improve our skills. NH Listens assigns trained facilitators based on experience, skill level, and project location. Anyone is welcome to become trained as a NH Listens facilitator.
