Our Lead Facilitators become certified through a four-day training program which is taught by the 180 Degrees National Organization. There are other available positions from both Lead Facilitators and Facilitators to Program Aids.
TUTORS & MENTORS
A major component of the services provided by Heartland 180 that supplements the 180 Curriculum includes providing volunteers who offer academic tutoring and life skills mentoring. Research shows that the success or our youth increases as more adults take and active and personal interest in the lives of these young people.
There are many ways that organizations can offer support to our programs. Just a few ideas include:
snacks and/or meals
family support groups and services
community service project support
volunteers and mentors
