Our Open Enrollment in San Francisco is up and running. They are the Golden Gate PHOENIX! And that’s an acronym that stands for Powerful, Hopeful, Optimistic, Effective, Nurturing, Inclusive eXperience!
And program activity is happening in South Africa, New Jersey for Haiti, Turkey for Afghanistan, Uganda, and in Oklahoma City too.
We will be holding a fundraising event in partnership with LifeLine Johannesburg on Thursday evening the 15th of November 2018. Come and join us. Learn about ACEs and reasons to be hopeful about a better future.
If you are in South Africa and you are interested in joining the team, come to our New Facilitators Meeting on November the 7th. Take a look at the calendar and contact us for the details.
We are offering another program to residents of the San Francisco Bay Area. Space is still available. If you are interested in participating in the program, please feel free to contact us about the information meeting. The next one will be at ArtSeed at the Presidio on Tuesday evening the 31st of July from 5:30 to 7:30.
