Dear Group Facilitators,
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we develop tools to deliver programs and services through the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center online, while the physical center is closed.
Below is a list of free resources to facilitate virtual group meetings.
If you choose to facilitate virtual meetings with your group, please let us know on the google form at the right so we can let potential attendees know it’s happening.
If you are not sure where to start on virtual meeting spaces, we recommend joining the center’s Discord server by making a Discord account at discordapp.com and contacting us to join the server. You should’ve also received the code to join in your email. A staff member will assign you a facilitator role specific to your group so you can invite individuals to a private voice and text chat for your group and your group only; center staff cannot see your private chat. Staff support is available for this option.
All facilitators are invited to join the center’s discord server to join a facilitator chat to trade tips and ideas about facilitating virtual meetings.
No matter what platform you choose, please continue to fill out attendance sheets using the google doc below or printing out a physical copy of the sheet attached and sending it to the center by mail.
If you are not currently a volunteer with the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center and would like to facilitate an online meeting with support and promotion from the center please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
We understand this is a lot of information and some or all of it may be new to you.
Staff are working remotely and are available by email to answer any questions you may have about facilitating a group virtually.
We will let you know when we are having meetings at the center again.
Thank you for your time and understanding as we work to keep the community connected,
