Problem Compulsive Gambling Training 12/04/09

Post by ribenitez » Thu Dec 10, 2009 1:08 pm

On Friday the 4th of December I facilitated a Problem Compulsive Gambling Awareness Training to the Public Allies 2010 Class at the Peace Education Building in Miami.

Public Allies is an AmeriCorps national program concerned with growing organic leadership within communities. Allys are selected, matched then placed within different non-profits for a 10 month apprenticeship. A foundation of program is the emphasis on training and professional development bi-monthly.

I approached the Allies staff with the idea of me coming in and doing a presentation and they were eager about having their Allies learn something new about a growing problem.

I had several handouts, fact sheets to add substance to the power point presentation I was using.Additionally, I had them watch the Deception video since it was a young audience.

Overall, the Allies got a lot of information from the presentation and asked some really good questions. I directed more than a couple to the website, and to me for further resources.
