Legacy International seasonally hires temporary, part-time Digital Facilitators to play a vital role in the implementation of our youth leadership development programs.
Virtual Global Youth Village connects young people ages 15-20 from around the world using our dynamic digital platform. The vIrtual Facilitator guides the process through videos, chats, dynamic webinars, interactive lessons, and games.
Virtual Global Youth Village supports students as they gain cross-cultural communication skills and explore ways they can impact their local community. Introducing youths to the Sustainable Development Goals and demonstrating how they are integral players in attaining those goals , helps build confidence and positive view of the future.
Over 90 youths participated in 2020. Students are broken into Pathways with 10-18 students per pathway. Two virtual facilitators lead and mentor youth during all asynchronous (12 hours per week) and synchronous activities (6-8 hours per week). Virtual Facilitators are committed to creating an open and trusting atmosphere in a virtual camp, using ground rules (or a “code of conduct”) to establish the conditions needed for constructive dialogue and behavior. Facilitators check-in regularly and respond to participant questions as learners complete asynchronous activities and post content on discussion boards. They establish a great environment for learning via Zoom and TalentLMS, welcoming and encouraging participants, and introducing them to the learning management system. Students needing additional support can take advantage of office hours or be paired with an in-country digital advisor.
