Inclusion doesn’t have to be a big production. A simple hello is a start.
At Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region’s interactive Inclusion Workshop, you will learn about community inclusion and how to be with each other in a way that includes everyone. We will explore 5 ingredients for quality support, hear stories from qualified facilitators who have lived experienced, and draw on the experience of everyone in the room. You will leave with a better understanding of your impact in relationships and how you’re contributing to a community where everyone belongs.
This 3-hour workshop is open to all community members and is mandatory for all new staff and support people.
Sarah Martin – Training and Organizational Development Coordinator
Michelle Scala – Recruitment and Volunteer Coordinator
Kevin Guay – Recruitment Coordinator
Andre Campbell – Speaker, Author and Comic Artist
Ryan McTavish – Workshop Facilitator, Autism Advocate and Public Speaker
