Starting Your Rainbows Group

Rainbows Facilitators must be able to promote and fill groups on their own. They may use our logo if they create a brochure or modify our own marketing materials. Facilitators may also use the Marketing Toolkit found in the online Facilitator Resource Center.

Rainbows Facilitators should use the Facilitator Manual to plan their group sessions. Facilitators may adjust lessons to groups as necessary. Facilitators may need to purchase additional supplies for their group(s). These materials can be purchased in our online store with a credit card.

Rainbows groups should meet once a week for 12-14 weeks. Group runtime is typically 30-60 minutes.

Only the participants are allowed in the sessions. Parents and adults who are not Rainbows trained Facilitators are not allowed to into the group session.

We ask that for the duration of the program, a Facilitator stays with the same group. We understand that things do come up. If you must miss one of your group sessions, then you must find a Rainbows trained Facilitator to take your place for that session and notify all participant parents/guardians of your absence.

Complete a pre-assessment of participants within the first 2 weeks of starting the group, which then must be submitted through the Facilitator Dashboard (http://facilitator.rainbows.org). 

Complete a post assessment of participants within 2 weeks of completing the group, which then must be submitted through the Facilitator Dashboard (http://facilitator.rainbows.org).
