Call for Facilitators – New Orleans, Philadelphia and Chicago

AmericaSpeaks is recruiting facilitators for Town Meetings in New Orleans, Philadelphia and Chicago. Volunteer facilitators will work with small groups of ten people to deliberate about a series of questions that will be asked over the course of the full day meeting. Via laptop computers and keypad polling devices, individual tables will share the results of their conversations with the hundreds of participants in the room. Facilitators will be oriented to the program and are expected have experience with small group face-to-face deliberation, comfort with diversity and difference of opinion.
