Looking for a way to get involved, but aren’t sure where to start? Offering opportunities for the whole family, NeighborLink Fort Wayne is an organization built upon neighbors helping neighbors. It is hosting a winter training session this weekend for interested volunteers.
The Winter Training Series is an opportunity to gather and learn from each other. Taking these opportunities to learn how to love your neighbor well will better equip all us to serve our community. These sessions are more conversations than lectures.
Introduction to NeighborLink – Andrew Hoffman will share how NeighborLink was formed, how it all works and where the organization is heading in 2013 and beyond. It’s vital to know the philosophy and to learn where you fit into that story.
NeighborLink Coach Training – Andrew Hoffman will review what he thinks makes a great coach & provide you with tips for how to be a great leader at NL. The difference from a basic volunteer & a coach is only a mindset. Come learn what it takes.
How To Live in Tension Round Table – If you do enough projects at NeighborLink or engage in activities like what NL offers, you have experienced the tension of serving. A veteran NL Coach will lead a discussion on how to handle that tension so you can remain engaged in loving your neighbor.
How To Engage The Neighbor Asking For Help – This will be a discussion on how best to approach NeighborLink projects and how to engage the neighbor seeking assistance. NeighborLink wants to make sure they’re doing these projects with our neighbors, and not always for them. Come ready with the questions that you’ve held onto from your previous projects and join in the discussion.
Saturday, March 6th – 9:00am to Noon
NeighborLink Fort Wayne Office – 2826 S Calhoun St (Blue Jacket Building)
