Become a Navigator
The Navigator Network is a volunteer program and has approximately 30 members from diverse backgrounds, and life experiences and have various roles throughout the community.
We believe people are experts in their own lives. Community members can be agents of change by influencing the systems which negatively impact their health and wellbeing.
The Wellness Navigator Network Program is a grassroots initiative that centers the voices of those who live and/or work in Big Sky. The navigators represent a cross-section of the community and have deep insight into the needs, strengths, culture, barriers, and challenges of specific groups within the community. They also serve as the heart of Be Well Big Sky, providing critical feedback on needs, barriers to care, and programs and services for the Big Sky community.
- Must live and/or work in Big Sky year-round
- Invested in the well-being of the community
- Have trust and rapport with specific populations in Big Sky
- Have a diverse background, life experience and/or role in the community to ensure broad representation of the Navigator Network
Candidates accepted into the program may begin the onboarding process which takes approximately 6 months to complete and includes trainings in a wide range of mental health and wellness curriculum and skills including: Suicide Alertness and Emotional First Aid. Navigators put this training to work as they connect individuals within their organizations, social circles and throughout the community to resources and information.
