Preparing the Space
After identifying your Adult Advisors and Peer Leaders, it is time for your Sources of Strength training! An appropriate setting is critical to having a successful Sources of Strength Adult Advisor Training and Peer Leader Training. The time and effort to find an appropriate location will be well worth the investment.
Below are more details to support your team in hosting your upcoming Adult Advisor Training and Peer Leader Training!
Food and Materials
Your training will likely go through the lunch hour, and you will need to make arrangements for the meal during the training. Teams often order sandwiches, pizza, or other simple meal options that Peer Leaders, Adult Advisors, and the Trainer can all eat in the training space together. Having additional snacks and drinks for Peer Leaders, Adult Advisors and Trainers to enjoy are recommended but not required and can add to the sense of the specialness of the day.
The Sources of Strength trainer will provide the majority of the materials needed, but we do ask each team provides:
- The box of materials shipped to the site from Sources of Strength (unless your trainer has communicated that they will bring all materials).
- A projector and screen with an audio hook-up (for Adult Advisor training only). The trainer will bring a laptop and an adaptor but will need access to a projector and screen.
- One Post-it Note sticky poster pad or similar type of sticky poster pad.
