OLD TOWN, Maine, July 23, 2014 – Maine-Wabanaki REACH, in collaboration with Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission, is hosting events in Bangor and Orono for those interesting in volunteering.
On Thu., July 24, at 6:30 p.m., REACH will host a Volunteer Orientation at the Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine, Rm 100, 96 Harlow Street, between Franklin and Central streets, in Bangor. During this 90-minute meeting, we’ll explore what volunteering means.
Then, REACH will conduct a two-part Volunteer Training Session in Orono for in-depth learning about how to support the work of truth, healing and change. This training is split into two evenings, Tues., Aug. 5, from 6 to 8 p.m., and Wed., Aug. 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Wilson Center, 67 College Avenue, Orono.
