Leaders (Building the World We Dream About)

This program should be facilitated by a team of at least two young adult people. The team should include either a religious professional or lay person who has significant facilitation experience and personal experience in talking about race and ethnicity. Because this is a program requires significant preparation and planning time, facilitators must understand the commitment they are making.

Effective facilitators will have these strengths:

  • Experience facilitating a group process
  • Experience engaging in multicultural dialogue
  • Ability to create and nurture a supportive, respectful, and safe community in the workshops and follow all congregational safe congregation guidelines and policies
  • Time and willingness to prepare thoroughly
  • Willingness to listen deeply and let "answers" emerge from the group process
  • Integrity and the ability to maintain strong boundaries, especially in challenging conversations
  • Commitment to Unitarian Universalist Principles and the faith development components of this program
  • Respect for individuals regardless of age, race/ethnicity, social class, gender identity, sexual orientation, and ability, and a willingness to modify workshop plans to support the full inclusion of all participants
  • Willingness to support healthy group process by reinforcing ground rules politely and confidently
  • Ability to model respect for the congregation, district, or other sponsoring organization and its lay and professional leadership.
