Become a Discussion Leader

The Art of Reintegration: Veterans and the Silences of War is seeking skilled facilitators who are enthusiastic about literature, veterans and the arts. We need professional individuals who can manage group dynamics in a calm and democratic manner. Our discussion leaders will be emotionally intelligent and trustworthy. We are more interested in your experience with handling groups than your educational background.
 
Discussion leaders will receive payment for their time ($200 per full training day, and $200 per event thereafter).
 
There will be a 5-day training program in July to prepare you to facilitate intimate, monthly conversation programs that will culminate in a panel discussion/presentation for a broader public audience. Please check the timeline below and confirm your availability before applying.
 
Timeline for discussion leaders
June 8: Application deadline for discussion leaders
