September 20th to 22nd is our Voices Network Retreat at Camp Arnes, Gimli, MB. This is a weekend of learning, laughing, and making connections for youth in and from care across Manitoba, ages 14 to 24. Participation at our annual retreat has grown over the years, and in order to keep this weekend safe and fun, we need volunteers to serve as adult supports!
Volunteers must be age 24+ (20+ if you are already a registered BGCW volunteer, social work student, or child and youth care student), have their child abuse registry and criminal record checks completed (as of 2013), and be able to commit to spending the entire weekend with us (Friday at 4pm through Sunday at 3pm). A mandatory volunteer orientation will be held on Monday, September 9th from 5-7pm.
Meals, accommodations, and a ride to and from Camp Arnes from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg head office are provided.
Please call or email by Friday, August 23rd if you are able to volunteer. If you are a social worker, and you are willing to attend the retreat with a group of youth you work, please let me know!
Thank you, guys, for helping to build an amazing community for youth in and from care in Manitoba. You are the bees knees :o)
