The success of this program depends on the qualified and caring persons who are selected and trained to be Our Whole Lives facilitators. Keep the following criteria in mind when choosing your facilitators:
It is very important to use these criteria in selecting the facilitators that you will send to training. (See "What does facilitator training involve?") It is also important to know that the Trainings have a screening element of the potential Our Whole Lives facilitators. Our trainers have a responsibility to the Our Whole Lives program to observe participants during the trainings to help ensure that it is led by capable and responsible facilitators.
Occasionally our trainers identify individuals during the trainings that might not be appropriate for facilitating Our Whole Lives. In those cases, trainers are instructed to speak directly to the facilitators in question and also notify contact persons at the facilitators’ congregations. Documentation is also sent to the Unitarian Universalist Association and UCC for their files.
In addition to carefully selecting facilitators for OWL, congregations are responsible for providing continued supervision and support for facilitators.
