Crossing Party Lines (CPL) moderators are responsible for creating group environments that allow civil dialogue and input from all participants while remaining neutral throughout the process. The goal is to provide each meeting attendee the opportunity to share their views and hear as many unique perspectives as are represented in the room.
In addition to making a meaningful and significant impact on their community and the country, CPL moderators acquire skills proven to benefit their careers and personal lives. Each moderator receives training and optional certification in facilitating communication among groups of ideologically or otherwise diverse groups of participants. You will hone your communication, listening and social skills. You will learn to create opportunities for participatory discussions and connection among group members, allowing them to express and present different opinions while maintaining a respectful environment.
