W.O.M.A.N., Inc. Community Gathering

Community Building Gathering

In May, we held a Community Building gathering as an ongoing education meeting. It was a great opportunity for W.O.M.A.N., Inc. volunteers to meet peers who help out in different areas of the agency as well as the volunteers who are in the same program but whose shifts are different.

Aside from sharing yummy snacks, participants completed personalized craft works which were then added to the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. community wall that displays similar works by present and past volunteers, staff members, and interns. It was great that there was time set aside for us to check in with staff about how the volunteer process is going for each of us. Receiving feedback and validation from staff and fellow volunteers was insightful and appreciated. We have all encountered similar situations doing the work we do, so knowing that we can relate to one another was comforting. Special thanks to Lily, Paola, and Mary for facilitating the meeting!
