Being tasked with facilitating a team of creative students to answer complex challenges based in science, technology, the arts, math, engineering or social learning may require some help. These people are volunteers in the New Hampshire Destination Imagination program. This Saturday at Penacook’s Merrimack Valley Middle School, many of these volunteer Team Managers will meet and be trained on ways to facilitate the creative process with their team members.
What: NH Destination Imagination Team Manager Training
Who: Volunteer Team Managers – the adult volunteers who facilitate the creative
process for Destination Imagination (DI) teams around the state
When: Saturday, November 17 from 9 AM – 3 PM
Why: Because when you are tasked with keeping a team of seven creative
students to leverage each other’s skills, creativity and problem solving

ABOUT NH DESTINATION IMAGINATION
New Hampshire Destination Imagination (NH-DI) is operated by the 501(c)3 non-profit NHICC (New Hampshire’s Incredible Creativity Connection). We are entering our 32nd year of running extra-curricular creativity-powered programs that extend in-school learning. Students in our programs learn critical thinking, creativity, cooperation, teamwork, communication skills and confidence. Many of our adult volunteers learn how to take the same lessons and implement them in the workplace to leverage team innovation.
During the summer months we operate Camp Gottalikachallenge, one of the nation’s first creativity camps.
Each year, Destination Imagination programs attract:
– Over 2,000 NH students and over 125,000 students worldwide
– 200 NH schools and community groups
– Over 1,000 volunteers – a part of the over 38,000 global volunteers
