We are recruiting again!
The Canadian Red Cross RespectED program trains volunteers to deliver violence & abuse prevention workshops. The volunteers go through 100 hours of training before going out to secondary schools and the community.
As Toastmasters focus on public speaking, your members may be interested in our program and sign up as volunteers. This training session will be held in Burnaby and the days are Tuesdays 6 to 9 pm and Thursdays 9 to 4pm. Training starts in September and will end in mid November.
I have enclosed a poster on the volunteer position. Please share this information with your members. If you or any of your members need more information you can call me at (604) 709-6642 or email me at email@example.com and I will be pleased to answer any questions.
