For those of you that have expressed interest in Peer2Peer Mentoring, please watch your email after the holidays for an update so we can get going in the New Year. If you’re interested in participating in this rewarding program, and haven’t already done so, please email Brynn Markham and let her know. We will work to match you to other GRAVA members relevant to your interests.
GRAVA Scholarship Awarded
Congratulations to Sara Beauchamp, Volunteer Manager with Communities in Schools! Sarah was awarded a $100 scholarship to apply toward the cost of her professional development. She will be participating in coursework at the University of Richmond’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies. Sara will be taking a class on storytelling in the nonprofit sector that she hopes will prepare her for a special project with Communities in Schools that aims to establish a “storybank” for their volunteers’ experiences. We look forward to hearing Sara share more about this after she completes this coursework, in January.
What Have You Accomplished This Year?
If you’ve completed coursework, earned a certificate or certification, please let us know, so we can share with your fellow GRAVA members. Seeing colleagues accomplish their goals is inspiring and can spur others to do the same. If you’ve completed any kind of professional development, email Brynn Markham, so she can share your accomplishments!
