Train the Trainer

Current Program

As invasive species issues attract more attention it’s not unusual for agencies to receive requests from schools or teachers to provide programs dealing with invasive species. Unfortunately, many who are asked to provide these programs are not trained to lead educational programs and may be very uncomfortable at the task.

Train the Trainer is designed to address the training needs of agency personnel, teachers or other adults working with kids. The program will help people become comfortable at providing high quality invasive species education programs upon request.

Train the Trainer workshops combine presentations about how to work with schools and students with hands-on training and how to deliver programs. Training is provided on how to interact with teachers and schools, how to deal with students of various ages and how different learning styles impact the ability to reach students. 

Participants will be supplied with the materials they need to conduct these same activities for groups of students. All participants and will leave with confidence that they can conduct a quality program whenever they are asked.

Train the Trainer education trunks may be purchased separately from the workshops.  Please feel free to call with questions, or email matt@stopais.org.
