New program certifies HOPE Faculty Trainers to host Train the Facilitator cohorts

BOSTON, MA, February 28, 2024 — The HOPE National Resource Center announces the new, free of charge HOPE Faculty Trainer Certification that trains HOPE Facilitators and HOPE Champions to be HOPE Faculty Trainers. Faculty Trainers can host their own Train the Facilitator cohorts to certify new HOPE Facilitators. All Facilitators trained by Faculty Trainers are added to the official HOPE trainer directory.

“It’s an exciting time where the growth and demand for HOPE trainings are outpacing the HOPE National Resource Center’s capacity,” says Amanda Winn, MSW, Director of Training and Technical Assistance. “We are delighted to partner with HOPE Facilitators and Champions to bring HOPE trainings to more Facilitators in their networks. This allows us to spread the HOPE framework that is locally relevant and speaks to the needs of individual communities.”

As part of the Faculty Training program, HOPE Facilitators and Champions first invite the HOPE National Resource Center to observe one of their Introduction to HOPE presentations. Following the observation, the program participants co-lead a Train the Facilitator cohort with the HOPE team. This two-part collaboration ensures that all Faculty Trainers and the Facilitators they certify are held to the same certification standards set by HOPE.

When hosting Train the Facilitator cohorts, Faculty Trainers use the HOPE National Resource Center’s resources to set up their cohort registrations and can offer both public and private cohorts. HOPE reimburses 50% of the registration fees for each cohort to the HOPE Trainers.

HOPE is now accepting applications for the HOPE Faculty Trainer Certification. Interested participants must have a completed or recertified HOPE Facilitator or Champion Certification at the time of application.

About HOPE – Healthy Outcomes from Positive Experiences

Based at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, the HOPE National Resource Center sees a world that honors and promotes positive experiences as necessary for health and well-being. Research shows that positive childhood experiences (PCEs) drive healthy child development and lessen the lifelong effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). HOPE aims to inspire a movement that changes how people and organizations advance health and well-being for children, families, and communities.
