Program Facilitators play a key role in helping Pathfinders connect what they’re learning during their program year to the organizations in which they work. Facilitators are LCLD Alumni who uniquely understand the work of LCLD and the experience we hope Pathfinders will have during their program year.

Role of the Program Facilitators

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. Facilitators will work in pairs, with two Facilitators assigned to each group of approximately 20 Pathfinders. Facilitators will regularly interact with their assigned group of Pathfinders, providing support throughout the program. 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 Facilitators will coordinate with each other and with their groups to schedule an initial group meeting.

Please review the 2023 Program Facilitator Guide linked at the bottom of this page for more details.

Program Facilitator Check-In Calls

Program Facilitator Check-In Calls are an opportunity for you to connect with LCLD and other Program Facilitators to hear updates on Pathfinder offerings, ask questions, and discuss any challenges you’re facing in your role as Program Facilitator. All calls are optional. 2023 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, a reflection and discussion guide, and a live webinar. Pathfinders and Program Facilitators will receive reminder emails when each e-module is launched. 
Note: While Program Facilitators are given access to view the e-modules, you are not expected to complete them.

If you have questions or concerns about the program or your Pathfinder group's participation, please contact Sarah Alexander, Pathfinder Program Manager.
