Students who have completed the BioSkills program can apply to become workshop facilitators

Workshop facilitators are committed to:

  • Help students in their group complete all required learning activities, 

  • Organize a BioSkills Workshops series at their post-secondary institution, 

  • Contribute to the recruitment of participants.

  • Participate in facilitator training and workshop preparations,

  • Monitor student progress and sign certificates of completion,

  • Improve the quality and content of the workshops.

To be considered as a workshop facilitator, applicants must be:

  • An alumni of the BioSkills or BioExperience program,

  • Registered as a student at a post-secondary student in Canada, and 

  • Endorsed by a current or former BioSkills workshop facilitator.

To become a workshop facilitator, you must join an existing team or create a new team with other facilitators. Teams with four or more members can host a workshop series. which means that they schedule and manage workshop sessions and recruit participants. A workshop series must have from 4 to 8 participants per facilitator. In other words, a team with four facilitators must recruit 12 or more participants and can accommodate no more than 32 participants.

Workshop facilitators are BioGroupe Canada volunteers and are eligible for an honorarium. The honorarium is $120-$240 per session, depending on the number of participants, refunded tickets, cancelled sessions, etc., and is shared among facilitators of that group. CRA rules dictate that an honorarium cannot exceed $500 per year.
