HAT CORE Training

Posted on Nov 28 2015 - 4:14pm

January HAT CORE is filling and has a capacity of 30 participants. IF the course fills and additional (otherwise waitlisted) interested persons enroll early enough to allow staff to plan and make preparations for going over that cap, I would happily work to see your successful enrollment in the upcoming course, as opposed to waiting until September 2016.

We volunteers are all exceptionally busy through the New Year and as always NEED EACH OTHERS' HELP to effectively serve our youth!  Click here for information.
