Facilitation Coaching Program

Whether a new or seasoned facilitation, participants in this program will be guided on a transformative social justice facilitation journey.

Each LJIST Social Justice Coaching Program has a different focus, level of commitment and pre-requisites. Each year we limit the number of coaching clients to ensure greater attention and access. If a spot is not available right away, purchasing the program will put you in the queue. In the meantime, you can access more immediate, short-term support through our “Intro Coaching” Program or by purchasing a LJIST Community Membership.
