Lifetime Independent Facilitation

YRLIF INDEPENEDENT FACILITATORS


Our facilitators are all "Associates" of YRLIF. Associates are independent and self-employed. YRLIF provides the following support to each of our Associates in order to ensure that they have the knowledge and expertise to support individuals in their community:


  • A Minimum Training requirement before practicing.
  • A Network Meeting on a monthly basis to support resource sharing, problem solving and sharing of tools and best practices.
  • Coaching and Mentoring provided for the first 6 months of practice by a recognised Facilitator.
  • Ongoing opportunities to attend training with a YRLIF subsidy.


HOW DO I ENGAGE AN ASSOCIATE OF YRLIF ?


In order to access a facilitator for yourself or someone else, please contact Niki by email at niki.stevenson@yrlif.ca or leave her a voice mail at 289-803-0336. 


HOW MUCH DOES FACILITATION COST?


The cost of facilitation varies based on their experience. In the province of Ontario the average rate for Facilitators is from 30$ to 45$ per hour. If you have Passport Funding (Community Participation Support Funding) through MCSS, you can use this funding to pay for Facilitation or Planning.
