Sara Ewing-Merrill and Courtney Tabor-Abbot will be offering a new training called Volunteer Training 2.0. The training will be offered on Saturday, May 4 from 9:30 am-12:00 pm at HopeGateWay (509 Forest Avenue, Portland). This training will be open only to volunteers who have already been trained. We plan to provide information about the basics of housing, financial assistance programs, and the asylum process. We will also reexamine and look deeper into the concepts of hospitality and volunteer roles.
All currently trained volunteers are invited and strongly encouraged to attend. current volunteer lists and encourage them to attend. Learning more about the issues facing our new Maine neighbors supports the A2U2 goal of fostering diversity and reaching out to the larger community. Let’s have a visible and enthusiastic A2U2 presence at this event.
