Train the Trainer Workshops
EAAA Train the Trainer workshops are held every spring at the University of Windsor. These workshops are open to women of all ages (>18) and backgrounds who work at or with colleges or universities interested in implementing the EAAA program at their institution. Graduates of these workshops, Campus/Community Trainers, are qualified to train and supervise the EAAA Facilitators, who can then deliver the program to young women on their university/college campuses or in their community.
NOTE: Trainers are not qualified teach Facilitators in the physical self-defence component of the EAAA program. A 15-hr, WenDo basic self-defence course (or approved alternative empowerment self-defence) and individualized instruction of Facilitators with a certified self-defence instructor must be part of Facilitator training.
Best practices suggest that Trainers should attend a training workshop no more than 6 months prior to the start date for hiring and training Facilitators in their home locations
Who Can Become an EAAA Campus/Community Trainer?
EAAA Train the Trainer workshops are open to women employed by or affiliated with a postsecondary institution or a non-profit agency (e.g., sexual assault centre) partnering with a university/college to provide the EAAA program on campuses free of charge.
The SARE Centre's goal is to make the EAAA program accessible to young women. Consequently, although Trainers and/or affiliated community agencies can apply for grants or be reimbursed for their training time, the EAAA program must be offered to female students for free.
