Event Description:

A dynamic experience including a community meal, inspirational speakers, spoken word poetry, story sharing, and facilitated discussion about how “volunt-hearing” can be truly empowering.
 
Volunteering builds strong communities, addresses community concerns, enhances career opportunities, and even provides a sense of personal fulfillment. This is the power OF volunteering. But who then is the giver and who is the receiver? With expert speakers, personal stories, and a shared meal, we will explore the power dynamics in giver-receiver relationships and new terminology that builds understanding, like volunt-hearing rather than volunteering. We will also demonstrate communication styles that embolden and inspire others, including inspirational spoken word poetry.

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 6 for food count purposes.

Presented by BRiCKs Alliance, Inc.; Circles INDY; and Tabernacle Presbyterian Church.
