The trainer guides are currently being revised for one-hour Bonner meetings and updates.

In the meantime, access the older versions (at times longer but easy to modify) at

Bonner Training Modules

 

Freshman/First Year Training

How to Use:

 

1)  This calendar lays out the available trainings in a way that fits the four-year developmental model.

2)  It's based on the best practice of having class- or cohort-based meetings every other week (twice a month).

3)  You can access the trainer guides using the links below.

4)  You can cut and paste the descriptions into BWBRS. They are pre-approved for Bonner AmeriCorps!

5)  We'll be adding new trainer guides throughout 2013-2014.  Check the Supplemental Training Resources.

6)  We also have some  Issue Based Trainings tied to service work, developed by the Bonner Network 
     and by relevant organizations with expertise.  We'll keep adding to these resources. 

7)  See the page on Using a Trainer Guide for additional help on how to use these.  You may want to contact the

     Foundation staff for additional tips or resources on facilitation, or join the Campus Change Academy!
