POSTPONED: Workshop: Economic Worries? Hey, Join the Club!

June 19, 2010 @ 1:00 pm - 6:30 pm

We apologize but this training is postponed until Fall, 2010. Please contact us for further information at Andree@commonsecurityclub.org.

What’s a Common Security Club? It’s a new way for group leaders and trainers to help congregations and communities help themselves in these troubled economic times.

The economic meltdown has left people isolated, vulnerable and afraid. In response, congregations and communities across the land are forming Common Security Clubs to help their members find connection, the information they need and avenues to a new kind of security, one based on mutual aid and support.

Now, you can learn how to start a Common Security Club with the members of your own organization or congregation at this upcoming workshop.

Who Should Come: People with experience in leading groups. No other expertise needed. We recommend coming in teams of two or more to make it easier to get started.

The Training: We will train you how to lead our 5-session curriculum designed to launch your Club. It’s simple, participatory and truly rewarding.

The Trainers: Chuck Collins and Andrée Zaleska from the Institute for Policy Studies

On-Going Support: We will provide you with all the materials you need, facilitation support and additional downloadable resources.

Registration: Advanced registration is mandatory. There is a $20 registration fee to cover materials and lunch. A sliding fee scale is available. Space is limited, so please register early.

Sponsors: The Institute for Policy Studies Program on Inequality and the Common Good, The Faith and Money Network.
