Holodomor National Awareness Tour – Facilitator Position

The job of the facilitator for the Holodomor Mobile Class Room is a unique position in which the incumbent must be proficient in the history of the Holodomor, the Ukrainian famine, that transpired in Ukraine while under Soviet rule in the 1930’s. The main responsibility of the facilitator is to deliver a pre-made, interactive lesson to grades 5 to 12, and occasionally university students, about the genocide in a mobile class room, as well as facilitating the general public with the showing of short documentary films about the Holodomor.  An RV, known as the Holodomor Mobile Classroom (HMC), has been retro-fitted to house and transport the mobile classroom (has a 12 screen audio visual wall, set of class tablets used during the lessons and video showings), presenting the lessons and videos to schools and community across Canada.
