Sibshop Facilitator Training 

What is a Sibshop? Sibshops are for brothers and sisters of individuals with disabilties. It is a workshop that provides young siblings with peer support and information, in a lively, recreational setting. Here is a short video introduction to Sibshops. 

Who can become a facilitator? Professionals, service providers, parents, adult sibs, and others interested in running a Sibshop. Our training is also open to Teen Sibs, aged 16 and older who have participated in WisconSibs programs or attended our Teen Leadership training. 

During the two days of training, you will: 

  • Learn about sibs' life-long concerns
  • Find out how to organize a local Sibshop
  • Experience what a Sibshop is all about - join us and local young siblings for a four-hour Demonstration Sibshop.

*there is an option to attend day 1 only for education purposes on sibling issues, but both days must be attended to become a certified facilitator

Upon completetion of this training you will be a Certified "first-generation" trained Sibshop Facilitator and (upon registration in the Sibling Support Project directory) may start your own local Sibshop. You will also be added to our WisconSibs facilitator list to contact when hosting WisconSibs Sibshops around Wisconsin.
