Volunteer Training at Tubman Center

Join your Humanist friends and become a trained volunteer at the Tubman Center.  Tubman is a secular non-profit dedicated to helping “women, children and families struggling with relationship violence, substance abuse and mental health…” http://tubman.org/home/about-us/ Humanists of MN is partnering with Tubman to support their work in the community.

The training on January 11th will cover the agency history, core services, whom and how they serve, ethics/boundaries, communication, the helping role, biases and self-care.  NOTE:  In addition to signing up here on Meet Up, you need to register with Joanie Braun at Tubman, [masked] or[masked]-6680.

Trained individuals will bring a monthly Friday evening game night to the families in safe shelter at the Tubman West Center in Minneapolis.  This is a fun way to get out and do meaningful work in the community!  After each event, volunteers will reconvene at a neighborhood bar/restaurant for more socializing.  Humanists of MN is scheduled to help with Tubman Family Fun Nights on the 2nd Friday of each month.

If this volunteer work is of interest to you, please try to make time for the orientation and training now so you are ready for future fun nights. 

For further information contact Sarah McPherson or Nancy Somers.

    I found this training program quite interactive and explanatory. I had a great learning experience. This training program will help me not only during participation in future volunteer services at Tubman centres but also in my other social activities.

    Since I missed the opening day training in the fall and attended the second evening instead, I'd be happy to attend this session if I can hitch a ride with someone.
