Support Group Retreat
The STAR Committee is planning an LGTBQ and allied support group meeting! We want to get an idea of how many volunteers would be interested in participating and available for the date listed below. Please send an email to Pcvni.star AT gmail.com and CC hailee.reed AT uky.edu by Monday, June 27th. This is merely to gauge interest and does not confirm your attendance.
Who: LGTBQ and allied PCVs (which may or may not include STAR Committee Members)
What: Support group meeting which will include discussions, reflections, and (because we are Peace Corps) fun activities! The agenda will be sent out closer to the scheduled date.
When: Saturday, July 16th at 10AM however, volunteers should plan to stay overnight.
Where: The meeting will be held at the Peace Corps Office in Managua; however, there will be an additional activity outside of the PC office.
Why: To give LGTBQ and allied PCVs a safe space to talk about their in service struggles, challenges, and successes!
Additional info: Reimbursements will be provided for all participants! We are unable to guarantee full confidentiality from select PC Staff due to the reimbursement process. However, confidentiality amongst participating PCVs will be expected.
Want to help us out?
This is a completely new concept for us and we want it to be meaningful and beneficial for participants. We are in the process of creating the agenda, so if you have any ideas please let us know!
