Are you looking for an involvement opportunity in your community? Do you have a strong interest in advocating for a non-profit organization? Would you like to improve your public speaking skills?
If so, the Bloomington Community Orchard invites you to join the Speaker’s Bureau Team!
The BCO Speaker’s Bureau is a project of the Outreach Team that focuses on relaying the stories of the orchard to the community in a variety of venues and contexts, from tabling to classroom presentations. Along with the opportunity to become more involved in the community orcharding movement through promoting the BCO, being a part of this program provides a great opportunity for growing in your own public speaking/communication skills and experience in advocating for any cause that is meaningful to you.
If this opportunity sparks your interest, please join us for our first training led by two non-profit organizations, BTCC and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, on February 2nd at the Monroe County Public Library in room 1B.
“Join Building a Thriving Compassionate Community (BTCC) and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard to explore and practice personal narrative techniques used by advocates to work for social justice. We’ll explore 2 tools you can use as a vehicle for your passion about a cause or organization. These tools come from the advocates at RESULTS, “a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together they use their voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty.” Let’s come together and craft the narratives needed to build community and social justice!”
