2018 Change it Up! Facilitator
Hours: 6-10 hours/week
Length: September - November
As a part of First Year Experience, Change it Up! is a 90-minute workshop that introduces first-year Housing residents and transfer students to bystander intervention skills for the purpose of building inclusive and respectful communities. Change it Up! explores how students’ social identities and experiences impact their interactions inside and outside of the classroom. Through interactive theatre, participants learn how to apply the four tools for intervention to real-life scenarios and discuss how they can leverage these skills within their campus communities.
During the Fall 2018 semester, Change it Up! will host over 50 workshops, each facilitated by a two student facilitator team in collaboration with the University of Michigan Educational Theater Company (UMetc). Given the wide array of experiences students bring to these workshops we focus on providing students with a foundational overview of social identity and intervention skills.
Change it Up! is looking for facilitators who have:
- a desire to positively impact first-year students and communities
- knowledge of and passion for social justice
- awareness of own social identities
- willingness to share personal experiences
- the ability to facilitate large groups of students
- a flexible fall schedule
Facilitators must attend the Change it Up! Fall Training on Sunday, September 16th (time TBD). In addition to all facilitator Spring and Fall training, facilitators are required to attend additional trainings and weekly meetings. It is expected that each facilitator will facilitate at least two (2) workshops and attend one (1) weekly two-hour facilitator (Monday 6-8pm) meeting per week. Facilitators will be compensated hourly for all workshops and trainings.
