The blog lives (as does the blogger)

Updated blog posts coming soon! In the meantime, please note the following:

In-service Training
For all volunteers!
Saturday, September 12*
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon
Emily Griffith Opportunity School

Topic: To be determined!
Date is very, very tentative

We haven't yet chosen a topic or a speaker. What would you like to learn about? In the course of the year, we offer eight hours of in-service training.
  • four hours of language teaching techniques or curriculum topics
  • four hours of refugee resettlement topics, including updates on overseas developments, new populations, health, benefits, cultural information, etc.
This time around, we are due for a resettlement topic. What would you like to know? Is there something about refugees you've wanted to learn but didn't know how to find the information?

If you have a suggestion or request, click on the word "comment" below this post to share your ideas. You don't need to have an account--just select the "name" option. Others will be able to see your comment, and that might get a good conversation going.

Don't delay in making your suggestions--I need time to line up a speaker. Let those ideas flow!

I am interested in learning more about the resettlement process in terms of how the resettlement agencies respond to post-resettlement issues that impact our jobs as tutors: e.g., vocational rehabilitation, legal advice, long-term care for the disabled and the elderly, counseling, citizenship, etc.
