When was the last time you left a Zoom meeting and said “That was zAWESOME”?

Greater MetroWest Boot Camp is an experiential training offering virtual facilitation skills and inspiration to keep online programming strong. In today’s virtual world, engaging and compelling content requires that leaders be confident in frameworks and techniques that are relevant, empowering, and impactful. Boot Camp will ignite lay leaders and their professionals with new skills to facilitate meaning-making, to lead buzzworthy gatherings, and to build a sense of culture within the confines of a screen… and beyond. This afternoon of virtual learning is brought to you by the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ.

THE EXPERTS

Join distinguished leaders from across the field for an experiential, camp-style gathering that trains you to harness critical skills in virtual facilitation and remote experience design. You’ll walk away with inspiration, tools, and modalities that can profoundly engage your community. And, maybe, just maybe… a paper plate award.
