Drive Change needs ENGAGING FACILITATORS!

Is there a particular food ingredient that you can't resist talking about? Maybe you're the proud owner of a food establishment? Do you think about fun and challenging activities in your free time? If you've answered YES to any of the questions, check out the Drive Change Workshop Catalog!

Every Friday, Drive Change engages our Fellows in professional development workshops to provide continued creative learning experiences, beyond the hospitality and culinary components of our truck and kitchen.  Click through the below areas of content (some have links for more details) to see if there is a workshop that tickles your facilitation senses!  If you're burning with a great workshop idea, and have 3+ hours you can volunteer on a Friday, fill out the below form to book a slot on our calendar!  (Note: Each bullet point is designed to be roughly its own workshop, to have depth through engaging activities, more than breadth of information across many items.)
