Hello all Women of our community,

I am excited to let you know about an upcoming program at the Nelson and District Women's Centre.
Rooted in Community is our free 20 hour volunteer skills and personal development training. This program will run Wednesdays from 9-11:30 April 18-May 30.
This training program is an opportunity to develop volunteer and support skills and learn about social services. Service providers from local organizations will come in to talk about various resources available in our community.
Participants will examine their relationship to feminism, anti-oppression, self care and develop peer counselling skills. It is also a safe place to share life experiences and connect with other women. Upon completion you will be well qualified to volunteer in our drop-in program.
All self-identified women are encouraged to join. This is an amazing opportunity to give to yourself and your community. Let me know if you have questions or would like to register for the program.
Please pass this along to any woman who may be interested.
Thank you,

This is a closed, pre-registered group! email shannon@nelsonwomenscentre.com to join.
