This is Part 1 of the Volunteer Supervisor Training for Great River Greening’s School Programs. Part 1 is open to 12 participants and covers: GRG history, goal of FLT program, general details on FLT events, Supervisor role and expectations, and working with/leading teens. Completion of this training will allow Supervisors to lead restoration activities at FLT events. If you wish to lead other environmental science activities at FLT events, you will need to also take Part 2 of this training.
Part 1 is held indoors and seated (lecture/small group discussion style), though all of our events are outdoors and require some level of physical activity. Light snacks and beverages will be available for participants.
Note: Becoming an active part of the Volunteer Supervisor Team requires completion of a background check. You will receive an invitation to complete this background check upon signing up for this training. Let us know if you do not anticipate joining an event this season, so we can better plan the background screening process for you.
