*Note: This is not first-generation Sibshop training (offered in the past by Don Meyer, retired director of the Sibling Support Project) that allows trainees to start their own brand of Sibshops. This is training for individuals interested in joining the troupe of WisconSibs facilitators that will help expand the number of WisconSibs Sibshops offered throughout Wisconsin. WisconSibs, Inc looks forward to working with a growing troupe of trained WisconSibs facilitators to offer more siblings the opportunity to experience Sibshops and other WisconSibs programs in their local communities.
