Your Role

Project Ready facilitators have the ability to bring a group of students together to form a safe group space where real personal growth can happen.

The aim of the facilitator is to guide, mentor and coach students through the Project Ready journey to the end where students have succeeded in developing the skills set out in the program.

Facilitators participate in Project Ready facilitator training and embody the principles described in the Project Ready facilitator position description.

Project Ready Relational Pedagogy

As a student-centred program, Project Ready is all about relationships, trust and mutual connections. It works!

The foundation of a successful Project Ready group is the establishment of trusting relationships between the facilitator, mentors and students. Facilitators delivering Project Ready must work towards building strong relationships with all students so they feel safe enough to learn, grow and develop.

The environment that is created in Project Ready is non-judgmental, non-authoritarian, non-punitive and safe.
