Train the Trainers
Train the Trainers is a program that identifies experienced and passionate individuals who have a desire to equip and prepare young people and adults for the world of work. TGTs are independent contractors with Training Grounds that are placed at various training sites implementing Training Grounds comprehensive curriculum. TGTs are identified, screened and trained to be not only trainers but change agents.
"I believe that as adults we sometimes concentrate on what a child will become, and we disregard who they are now, at the present time. Becoming a Training Grounds trainer allows me to meet the youth where they are. Training Grounds provides vast learning experiences which contribute to the creation of a networking framework of growth and hope, for the participants and their families. Through these experiences, lives are changed. We may not be able to see the fruits of our labor, now ; but the seeds are planted. I am blessed to be a facilitator of growth and change."
How do I become a TGT with Training Grounds?

What are my responsibilities as a TGT?
TGTs are trainers, teachers, leaders and administrators in their classroom. TGT’s are responsible for delivering the assigned curriculum as well as managing their classroom. It is the responsibility of the TGT to take attendance, evaluate the participants and work with the staff of Training Grounds to ensure that program participants have a positive and beneficial experience.
What kind of experience do I need in order to become a TGT?
We desire our TGTs to have experience working with or volunteering with our targeted demographic – young people and/or hard-to-serve adults. We desire our TGTs to have experience conducting training sessions or teaching experience.

What kind of time commitment is required of TGTs?
Each partner site has different needs. Some training sites might require TGTs that can conduct training sessions in the evening while some might require training sessions conducted during the day time.
Additionally we ask that TGTs sign a year commitment with Training Grounds. It is important that there is a consistency of trainers assigned to our partner sites.

"The reason I became a trainer at Training Grounds is simple. Training Grounds is one of the only organizations that uses out of the box techniques to convey the importance of change - change of mind set, change of the way to go about one’s so-called “regular life”, and change from street mentality, to corporate professionalism. We are faced with a group of young people who have their own language, and their own logic as to how things are supposed to be. Training Grounds is the bridge between misunderstood young people with potential and young professionals who can adapt in the corporate setting without losing the core of who they are."
