Mentoring and Support for Mozilla Festival Facilitators and Core Team


In the fall of 2016, we worked to assure that the sessions at MozFest would be of value and meaningful for participants. This year’s MozFest, which took place at Ravensbourne College in London on October 28th to 30th, had over 1700 attendees, and over 500 facilitators. FabRiders’ undertook activities and counselling that aimed at supporting facilitators, space wranglers and the MozFest Core Team in improving facilitation skills and the design of sessions. ┬áThis included: Online Facilitator Clinics, Space Wrangler Coaching Sessions, Core Team Mentoring Sessions, an onsite facilitator orientation prep session (that had close to 300 facilitators attend) just before MozFest and running a facilitator support desk on site during MozFest.
