Quantitative and qualitative data collected from research subjects in a multi-year University of Maine Cooperative Extension staff development initiative showed that in-depth facilitation training and practice can effectively prepare Extension staff to help groups achieve positive change. Facilitation training can lead to effective facilitators as well as more effective group members, demonstrating the long-term organizational and community value of training Extension staff in core facilitation skills.
