International Association of Facilitators (IAF) Gold Facilitation Impact Award

 

The York County Alliance for Learning (YCAL) and York County Economic Alliance (YCEA) received the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) Gold Facilitation Impact Award at the 2013 IAF North America Conference on June 6.

The IAF Facilitation Impact Awards, initiated in 2013, are international awards honoring excellence in facilitation and its positive, measurable impact on businesses, governments and non-profit organizations worldwide.  The awards were open to organizations in North America and South America and the respective facilitators. 
YCEA and YCAL received the Gold Facilitation Impact Award for their collaboration to develop the Business and Education Partnership Roundtable (BEPR) event.  The BEPR, developed in 2011 and facilitated by Richard and Lynda Randall of New Level Advisors, brought the education and employers communities together in support of local workforce development. Since the inaugural BEPR in 2011, school districts and employers have partnered to enhance curriculum, share resources and identify solutions to challenges.
