Partners for a Racism-Free Community (PRFC) Volunteer Assessor Training


PRFC is recruiting volunteers to be assessors in the Standards and Credentialing process. Organizations go through a process to assess themselves in six areas (standards) to intentionally create a racism-free environment. Assessors are on a team that do a site visit with an organization, meet with their team to discuss strengths and areas of improvement for the organization and then meet again with the organization to go over a feedback form. A training will be held on Friday, January 28, 2011 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Steelcase University (901 44th St. SE). Call Lisa Mitchell at 643-0227 or email lmitchell@graceoffice.org to register or if you have questions.

Volunteer assessors should:

  • Plan on 2-3 reviews a year – each review is about 8-10 hours of time
  • Plan or have some experience in diversity, cultural competency or anti-racism work/events
  • Have attended an Institute for Healing Racism or some similar training (not required but desired)
  • Be able to work collaboratively in a small team setting
  • Be willing to be open and flexible to new information
  • Be able to listen, review facts objectively, and communicate thoughts and ideas orally with clarity 
  • Be able to engage in negotiable dialogue/debate

To indicate whether or not you plan or perhaps might be attending, please indicate so at the following page: Partners for a Racism-Free Community (PRFC) Volunteer Assessor Training.
