Physically Distanced Does NOT Have to Mean Socially Distanced!
We have expanded our CircleTalk™ Leader Course Training to include a course to train leaders to bring older adults together virtually through phone or computer engagement.
Our new Virtual Course provides leaders with the resources of CircleTalk™ Master Trainers for coaching to get your Virtual Circle started. Leaders are trained on how to bring participants together through virtual means – via video chat or phone. CircleTalk™ training helps you learn how to determine if your group is better equipped for phone circles or if they are able to access computer connections. We will prepare leaders to identify appropriate virtual channel for your group, to schedule and begin leading ‘Virtual Circles’.
How do CircleTalk™ Programs Work? We bring older adults together and engage them in meaningful conversations in a regularly scheduled, one hour conversation program. CircleTalk™ programs build connection and relationships through high quality interactions.
