Creative Facilitation

PYE creative facilitation trainings allow facilitators to experience, practice and deepen their understanding of PYE’s Creative Empowerment Model (CEM). In all of our trainings, participants will be invited to explore their own creativity and build their facilitation toolkit. Understanding and integrating the CEM into your own facilitation involves deep and experiential practice with a focus on internal transformation. Alumni often tell us that these trainings are the missing piece in their professional development.

Whether you join us just for Creative Facilitation 1 or for the whole training series, you will gain insight into what makes an empowering Creative Facilitator. To achieve the greatest depth of understanding and embodiment of the CEM, we recommended taking all of the trainings in sequence.

PYE training is unique.

It goes to the heart of using facilitation to develop vital social and emotional skills in young people and increase your impact.
