FVLC December 2017 meeting to feature United Way of the Lower Mainland community service and peer referrals training
Please join us on Wednesday December 13th for our December meeting and a special training session around community services and peer referrals.
Thanks to support from the labour movement, United Way has built a strong social network of programs and services in our communities to help those in need. This educational session will help participants learn about these resources in our community that are available to assist members. As a key component of the United Way/CLC Labour Community Advocates program, participants will learn how to use services such as BC211 to access agency support. Join Nikki Hill, United Way of the Lower Mainland’s Director of the CLC Labour Participation Department, for this informative session.
This training is open to everyone! So please invite your coworkers, family, friends and other community members you think may be interested!
We specifically want to have this training in December in that many challenges or barriers people could benefit from resources and referrals from are often magnified over the holidays and we want to make sure our delegates, communities and workplaces have the tools required help others in this time of need when pressures are high.
The training will run from 7pm to 8pm. We will then have a brief Labour Council meeting followed by a special holiday surprise and something fun!
