Do we facilitate our workshops online or in person?
In 2020-2021, we facilitated ALL of our workshops online. This looked like joining virtual classrooms on Zoom or Google Meets or being live-streamed into physical, in-person classrooms.
In 2022, we will continue to offer online workshops and live-stream our workshops into classrooms. We expect that most of our workshops will be in these online formats. In addition, we will start offering an in-person workshop option for classrooms that are interested in that.
As a workshop facilitator, you will only facilitate in person if you are comfortable doing so and if you are fully vaccinated. If you are not comfortable and/or vaccinated, you can facilitate workshops online.

The staff at Rivers of Hope are professional, prepared and a delight to work with. I genuinely enjoy our meetings and look forward to engaging with everyone and brainstorming on ways to create more powerful content for our students. I consider it a blessing to be working with them!
Rivers of Hope offers a space to create fun and engaging dialogue on combating the rise of Islamophobia. Working with our team of facilitators has been a meaningful experience to collaborate and learn from one another. I'm excited for the impact we hope to continue making in our communities.
