The MindFIT Student Facilitator Training Program prepares students to facilitate mindfulness meditation for their peers.
Program EligibilityAll current U of T students are eligible to apply.
How The Program Works
Completion of the program requires students to participate in 20 hours of Mindful Moments meditation sessions, 8 ours of in-class training and the co-facilitation of drop in meditations. You will learn how to structure a lesson, and develop skills in public speaking and facilitating group dialogue.
During the program, you will demonstrate your understanding of the origins, research and benefits of practising mindfulness. The training culminates in leading an entire meditation session on your own.
Facilitators-in-training receive feedback from the mindfulness and meditation programming coordinator and their peers throughout the process.
MindFIT Student Facilitator Training applications will reopen in December 2020.
