SIGN-UP for TEam development workshop
Are you a volunteer at Grace? Do you serve on a Team? We are having our 2nd annual Team Development Workshop on Tuesday November 12th from 7-9pm. SIGN-UP HERE.
Last year we had over 80 volunteers attend this night. It is a two hour workshop designed to celebrate and develop as a team. If you need to hire a babysitter to be able to attend this night, we would love to cover those babysitting costs so that you can attend this evening. We will be providing $30 per family. Email Becky Goodwin for details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Grace Plans for Strike Camp
As many of you know, there is potential that education workers will strike as early as November. Grace would love to support the families of Guelph by providing a free child-care solution for families who have no other options. If a strike occurs, we will be ready to open our doors with a simplified day camp: Strike Camp!
This is a wild and beautiful idea and to pull this off we are going to need YOUR HELP! Whether that be volunteering, helping prepare crafts, offering your ideas, or praying for this exciting mission we would love for you to be onboard. For more information or to get involved, fill out this survey or contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
3 Question Survey from Just Right
We are currently accepting applications to consider new multi-year organizational partners for Just Right (our Grace Outreach team). These need to be agencies that Grace people are already connected with, as our goal is to accelerate your service in our communities.
