The following is from the South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race
South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race is taking registrations for its free volunteer preparation training known as The Civic Engagement Institute (CEI). For an application or more information, complete the Contact Form at www.twotowns.org/contact or call 973-761-6116. Everyone 18 years or older is welcome and encouraged to participate.
The Institute consists of four workshops held on Saturday mornings from 9:15 am to 12:30 pm on February 11, 18, 25 and March 4 at the South Orange Public Library, 65 Scotland Rd., in the first floor Community Room. Topics covered include Time Management & Productivity, Personality types (including a free Meyers Briggs personality index and analysis), Group Dynamics and Volunteer Opportunities presented by various organizations, including our town governments.
The training is intended primarily for South Orange and Maplewood residents who are interested in becoming volunteers, but could use additional information about the volunteer process, the expectations and the opportunities available for volunteering. We are especially interested in attracting residents from groups that are underrepresented in the current volunteer pool.
