Would you like to be a trained facilitating teacher for Elementary OWL (K-1st and 4th-6th) or Middle/High School OWL? (7th-9th and 10th-12th)
These are the training opportunities for summer. To offer OWL to our children and youth, we must  have trained facilitators. We are especially in need of facilitators who identify other than cisgender female.

We are slated to teach 4th-6th grade OWL next fall during 9:30 Platform.
