The Successful Project

A Free Webinar with the Self Advocates of Semiahmoo (SAS)

November 13, 2020, 10:00AM – 11:30AM (PST)

*This event will have live captioning*

Learn how to host fun events that get everyone engaged! In this fun and engaging webinar you will learn about fundraising, community development, and creating successful projects.

SAS members Krista and Michaela will share with you two of their favourite annual events: The New to You Clothing Sale and their Canada Day Celebrations at White Rock Beach.

SAS will share with you a special checklist that will help you plan, carry out and review projects. It is called the The Successful Project Checklist. During this presentation we also need you! We will be asking questions throughout the presentation. We want to hear what you do in your self-advocacy groups and day programs.

There will also be a live chat and 30 minutes at the end to ask questions to the presenters.
