Become a Cuddle Party Facilitator

Step 1: Foundations of Facilitation – 3 1/2 day long intensive workshop in how to facilitate ANY group event so that your participants (and you) get the most out of it. This is open to anyone wanting to facilitate groups with more ease and effectiveness. Many people take this course who have no interest in facilitating Cuddle Parties.

FOF is also offered online – with online materials and group video calls. When you register for FOF you have access to the online materials, the group calls AND a live training. You may attend the live training at any time. Some people take the live training and use the online materials as a resource. Some people take the online training and attend a live training later. Either way is fine.

Step 2: Cuddle Party Certification Training – After FOF, you have the option to apply for this 10-week virtual training which applies specifically to Cuddle Party.
