Facilitators Keep Things Local

Air Certified Facilitators are the heart of the our programs. They provide a personal connection and give participants confidence that they can learn, connect, change and succeed. We invest in your local community by providing more than twenty hours of in-person training for every facilitator – in-depth facilitation, presentation, and coaching skills designed for your success.

Air Facilitators know you have the answers

It is an acquired skill to learn to facilitate without teaching or leading or providing an “answer.” All of our facilitators work hard to master this skill and to share tools with participants so that communities have more people ready to be open for a truly local, collaborative process and creative ecosystem.
