Train the Trainer Webinar

January 10, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The DOH SNAP-Ed Team will host this webinar. Please see details below:

WHEN: Thursday, January 10; 10 AM-11:30 AM


WHY: We’re using “train-the-trainer” as an all-encompassing term for training non-SNAP-Ed funded persons to carry-out work that contributes toward SNAP-Ed and community health goals. Agencies use train-the-trainer models to achieve different aims, including to:

·         Expand program reach and ability to impact more people;

·         Create sustainability;

·         Allow for peer-led programming: peer-led programming can improve cultural competency, language availability, relatability, etc.; and

·         Create advocates within the community.


WHO: Hear from four guest presenters talk about their use of train-the-trainer models:

·         Debbie Spink, Department of Health Community Health Worker Program: DOH’s program to train Community Health Workers.

·         Meghan Jacobson, Spokane Regional Health District: Using a Community Health Worker model in low-income housing sites.

·         Anna Kitchin, WSU King County: Training volunteers to lead food tastings at food pantries.

·         Melissa Davis, WSU Thurston County: Training school teachers on physical activity breaks.

·         YOU! At the end of the call, there will be 30 minutes for discussion and questions. Please bring your own train-the-trainer stories to share!


WHAT: The webinar will tackle several key considerations for train-the-trainer models, such as:

·         How to get started?

·         Compensation/incentives to use?

·         How often to follow-up with trainees?

·         How to overcome common challenges (language, retention, engagement)?

·         How to evaluate effectiveness?
