David Garcia Project Facilitator Application
Thank-you for your interest in becoming a part of the David Garcia Project Facilitator team. Please take a few minutes to become familiar with the David Garcia Project and complete the application. Note this is the application for a Volunteer Facilitator position and not the Student Coordinator position.
DGP Mission Statement: To promote and advocate for individuals with disabilities by educating through activities simulations and reflection.
Synopsis of Project: We use activities simulations to promote empathy rather than sympathy for individuals with disabilities and what is different about their daily lives. The David Garcia Project (DGP) educates through five main categories of disabilities: physical, visual, auditory, learning, and psychological. The use of reflection is key for the individual to reflect on the experience they just went through and how this has impacted and can influence their life.
Facilitator Responsibilities: Guide participants through activities and use discussion, reflection, and information to help them get the most out of their experience. Become familiar with activities and categories to a point where you can comfortably present on them. Attend the required trainings and sessions. Communicate regularly with the Student Coordinator and other facilitators.
- 2017 Fall Semester minimum
