If you are interested in becoming a Peer Support Group Facilitator, please send your resume and cover letter to email@example.com, and come check out one of our groups (our current schedule is here).
Kaleidoscope is a peer-led mental health support group. It is essential to our core values that our facilitators identify as having lived experience of mental illness, and have attended the group regularly for at least three (3) meetings.
For individuals who have personally benefited from attending Kaleidoscope groups, and want to give back while also gaining professional development skills, we offer the opportunity to become a facilitator. It is important for our facilitators to be able to relate on some level to other members of the group. This helps foster a peer-to-peer relationship where everyone is on the same level.
By having prospective facilitators attend the group as participants, you can get a sense of our meeting structure, and observe the facilitator’s role. It also provides the time and space for us to get to know you, and you, us. We want to ensure sustainability and authenticity in our groups, creating an environment that supports the empowerment of our members.
