GeorgiaBEST@Home is designed for individuals, parents, mentors, after-school programs, faith-based organization, civic groups, etc. Goal: exposure to concepts; develop an understanding of employer expectations; work to improve skills and competencies.
Training can be self-directed or led by a facilitator. Parents can engage in conversations with their employment-aged children about the study materials. Individual participants and group facilitators can use the link at the bottom of the page to register for the GeorgiaBEST@Home program. Once registered, they can then log in to access the facilitator’s guide, lesson plans, activities, and ethical choice scenarios. While there is no certificate for GeorgiaBEST@Home, participants will gain valuable information that can help them not only get a job, but keep a job.
Facilitators who plan to lead training through after-school programs, faith-based organizations, civic groups, etc. will also have access to a Train-the-Trainer Toolkit (adapted from ASTD’s Ultimate Train the Trainer: A Complete Guide to Training Success workbook, written and copyrighted by Elaine Biech and the American Society for Training & Development, and published by ASTD). The toolkit may be helpful for those facilitators who lack experience or confidence with conducting training sessions. It includes a Trainer’s Guide, PowerPoint slides, handouts, and additional resources.
