Upcoming Training Events

NB PEI Training is pleased to bring Guiders virtual trainings

Below you will see sessions as well as dates and times.

Score with storytelling

Storytelling has existed as long as people have. It is a great way to connect emotionally with your group. So many of us use storytelling in our meetings already, but this session looks at using stories intentionally.

Sunday, January 10, 7-8 p.m. training (open until 8:30 for additional questions/chats).

Wednesday, January 13, 8-9 p.m. training (open 9-9:30 for further questions/chats).

Hosting virtual camps and sleepovers

Unfortunately, there may not be sleepovers or in-person camps this year, but we know they are very important to many of our girls and leaders. We are erring on the side of safety for all and that will likely mean a continued ban. Across Canada, many areas and districts have started holding discussions on how to best hold these camps and sleepovers. Borrowing from some of their ideas and suggestions, this session aims to build a database of ideas and how to’s for virtual events. Come join us and bring your sharing hat!

Sunday, January 17, 7-8 p.m. training with an additional 30 minutes available for chat and social time.

Thursday, January 21, 8-9 p.m. training with an additional 30 minutes available for chat and social time.

Working with those with Unique Needs

This session will examine working with girls and adults with various unique needs. If we want to truly be an organization for all, then this becomes very important.

Sunday, January 24, 7-8 p.m. training with an additional 30 minutes available for chat and social time.

Thursday, January 28, 8-9 p.m. training with an additional 30 minutes available for chat and social time.
