WORKSHOPS


Did you know that close to one half of all Canadian contribute to their community by volunteering? Volunteers provide much needed human resources to voluntary organizations and the people they serve — they also bring new ideas, skills and energy to these organizations. Kings Volunteer Resource Centre provides a workshop series to help volunteers and voluntary organizations to become even more effective. These free workshops are now open for registration.

At the eventbrite link below you will find summaries of our 2019 workshops with dates, times and locations.  We begin a new workshop calendar year on February 20th 2019 with THE NUTS AND BOLTS OF EVENT PLANNING hosted by experienced facilitators Genevieve Allen Hearn and Laura Churchill Duke who have created workshops designed to build your capacity around event planning.

We continue in March with Starting a Non Profit in 5 Easy Steps, followed by Volunteering for Employment in April. And keep an eye out for our annual day long Volunteer Symposium on May 15!

There is something for everyone – whether you are an organization working with volunteers or a volunteer yourself.

Register for free at the following link:

Be sure to sign up EARLY as spots are limited. Any questions, contact me at the email below.

WAR AMPS 2019 KEY TAGS MAILED OUT TO NOVA SCOTIA RESIDENTS

As The War Amps embarks on its second century of service, the Association’s 2019 key tags are being mailed to Nova Scotia households this week with the theme, “Your Key Tags at Work.”

The Key Tag Service was launched after the Second World War so that returning war amputee veterans could not only work for competitive wages, but also provide a service to Canadians that would generate funds for the Association.

Each key tag has a confidentially coded number. If you lose your keys, the finder can call the toll-free number on the back of the tag or place them in any mailbox, and The War Amps will return them to you by courier, free of charge.

The War Amps receives no government grants. With the public’s support of the Key Tag Service, the Association is making a difference in the lives of amputees by providing financial assistance for artificial limbs, peer support and information on all aspects of living with amputation.

Those who do not receive their key tags in the mail can order them at waramps.ca or call toll-free 1-800-250-3030.
