To become a master story facilitator, any interested person pays a $320.00 registration fee and then attends a 16-hour certification course.
As people become master story facilitators, the local and county events use that pool of facilitators as their featured professionals. Sponsors may off-set the $320.00/person as a type of scholarship though the potential master story facilitator must pay at least $100.00 as an act of commitment. Each training for facilitators must range from 7-12 people in the course. All registration fees are given to the expert for all their prep time, actual teaching time, and coaching skills.
