Initiatives > Talking Service: A Reading & Discussion Program > What responsibilities does the facilitator have?


The scholar-facilitator selects a final syllabus of readings from the anthology Standing Down. The facilitator leads all discussions (as determined jointly by the host organization and the scholar). Prior experience working with veterans and/or serving in the military is strongly recommended, but not required. The facilitator is also required to attend two training webinars prior to the start of their series: one focused on basic expectations and best practices of facilitation, the other focused specifically on working with veterans.
