The Program Facilitator plays a key role in helping Pathfinders connect what they’re learning during their program year to the organizations in which they work. The Facilitator will be an LCLD Alumnus who uniquely understands the work of LCLD and the experience we hope the Pathfinder will have during their program year.
Role of the Program Facilitator
Program Facilitators work to ensure that the Pathfinder curriculum is made relevant to the Pathfinder’s workplace and that Pathfinders have a smooth and successful experience in the Pathfinder Program. Each Program Facilitator will be assigned a group of approximately 20 Pathfinders to support throughout the program. LCLD Pathfinders regularly interact with their Facilitator over the course of their Pathfinder Program experience. All Program Facilitators are invited to introductory webinars ahead of program commencement to discuss in more detail what the role entails.
LCLD stays in contact with Program Facilitators throughout the course of the program and provides all the necessary resources that Facilitators need to be effective in the role. Once Pathfinder groups have been established, the Program Facilitator will reach out to schedule an initial group meeting.
Please review the 2022 Program Facilitator Guide linked at the bottom of this page for more details.
Program Facilitator Check-In Calls
Quarterly Program Facilitator Check-In Calls are an opportunity for you to connect with LCLD and other Program Facilitators to hear updates on what is being offered to Pathfinders as well as to ask questions and discuss any challenges you’re facing in your role as Program Facilitator. All calls are optional. 2022 Program Facilitator call dates are listed in the Program Facilitator Guide linked in the Resource section at the bottom of the page.
Pathfinder Online Learning: E-Module Portal
E-Module content is launched each spring following the Pathfinders' first class meeting. Each e-module will include an e-learning segment, several action assignments, and additional optional readings and podcasts. Pathfinders and Program Facilitators will receive reminder emails as the e-modules are assigned throughout the year. Pathfinders will also coordinate calls with their Peer Circles to discuss program materials (please note that Peer Circles are separate small groups comprised only of Pathfinders). While Program Facilitators are given access to view the e-modules and associated assignments, you are not required to complete the e-modules/assignments.
If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about the program or your Pathfinder’s participation in it, please contact Sarah Alexander, Pathfinder Program Manager.
