Digital Workshops for Non-profits
The Community Pandemic Recovery Task Force and Pinnguaq Association are pleased to present four free digital workshops for non-profit organizations.
“The Community Pandemic Recovery Task Force is committed to helping local non-profit organizations build their capacity given the ongoing effects of the pandemic,” said Task Force Co-Chair Amy Terrill. “The partnership with Pinnguaq enables us to focus on specific needs related to adapting to the digital environment, that were identified by non-profits in our previous outreach.”
The workshops are designed to help expand knowledge of digital tools that are being used more widely because of the pandemic. Workshops will run on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 3pm beginning May 19. There are no pre-requisites to attend and anyone can attend just one or all of them.
“For leaders of community organizations, improving your teams’ digital skills is easy to achieve. These workshops will help you operate smarter and leaner, and enable you to make a bigger impact in our community,” says Pinnguaq CEO Ryan Oliver. “That’s why we’re proud to offer our expertise in skills training in partnership with the Community Pandemic Recovery Task Force and support our fellow non-profits in the Kawartha Lakes.”
