VOLUNTEERING WITH PRIDE WEEK IN PEEL!
With Pride Week less than three months away we are gearing up to begin planning the festivities. As many of you know, Pride Week in Peel is going through a number of changes this year, including significant changes in the staff members who will be running the event. We encourage volunteers to think of this time of transition as an opportunity to reimagine Pride Week. Community members and volunteers have consistently shared that community ownership over Pride Week activities is extremely important. Based on this feedback, the East Mississauga Community Health Centre would like to engage community members in a process of planning a Pride Week that will meet community needs with available resources.
To help support this process, EM CHC has enlisted the help of Felix, Jared and Mallory at Sustainable Societies Consulting Group. The folks at SSCG specialize in facilitating processes of leveraging community knowledge to work towards sustainable member-driven initiatives. They will be contributing their expertise in project management and will provide practical and administrative support. The goal in partnering with SSCG is to allow community members to provide meaningful contributions without being overburdened with a heavy time and work commitment.
