Would you enjoy sharing simple skills to build resilience to crisis across local communities?

We are looking for volunteers who are positive about educating adults, to lead virtual workshops. Our workshops encourage kind and inclusive communities who can cope with change and recover from adversity.

You will need access to a reliable internet connection and a computer or laptop. (We are unable to provide equipment for you). 

If you have previous experience that’s great, but we can give full training and support if you are passionate about this and want to get involved.
