SCALE's Facilitators of the Year Initiative recognizes and celebrates program staff who are facilitating agriculture, natural resource management, or alternative livelihoods-related activities around the world.

We asked our community to nominate individuals working on USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)-funded emergency or nonemergency activities who use engaging and participatory facilitation techniques, respectfully and actively listen to others and effectively draw on others’ experiences.

These exceptional facilitators comprise the SCALE Facilitators of the Year 2021 Cohort and their top facilitation tips can be found in the brief below. Join us in celebrating them!
