This month we will offer part one of our orientation training programs “Find Your Voice In Social Action”. Training is geared toward those participating in our Project Stewardship program and for our new volunteers! Participants will learn from history, particularly from the progressive era of the early 20th century highlighting the benefits of civic engagement, outlining our philosophy, and laying the groundwork for self and social development.
Following our “Find Your Voice in Social Action” session, we will kick off the Spring 2017 season with a fun-filled evening with guest magician, Carol Kline of Mismatch the Clown, who will teach the secrets to some simple magic tricks. We will make a couple of magic tricks together and figure out how to solve them in a fun way while using our imaginations and building skills. All are welcome to bring a magic or card trick with them to share! Enjoy time with one another as we look forward to another year of camaraderie and community.
If able, please also bring a non-perishable food item with you to donate to the Levittown Food Pantry. Thank you!
Part two of our orientation training program, “Nature Communities” will be held in April. We will delve further into the purpose of developing an ecopsychological world-view. Understanding how we are all connected and ways in which we can contribute to our world can help to spark the process by which young adults become “stewards” for one another and the Earth. There will be a hands-on group activity and conclude with a nature-based art project.
Both trainings will provide background needed for young people to take on an array of different volunteer and internship opportunities while enjoying time with peers. Become teachers, leaders and advocates on behalf of oneself, others and Earth!
