QVS Twin Cities Winter Event: Virtual Alumni Panel
Wednesday, Feb 2nd | 7PM CT
Join us to learn more about Quaker Voluntary Service! We have a vibrant program in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area — in its 4th year!
On February 2nd, we will hear from local and national QVS alums about life after the QVS year, and what the impact of this experience has been for these young adults.
The event will also include some national staff and local support committee members talking about the program, a little entertainment, and a chance to talk in smaller breakout groups over zoom. We will share how you can support the program financially, but our purpose is to give Friends a chance to get a feel for what this experience means for young adult participants.
Please RSVP ahead of the event. If you are unable to attend, please consider supporting QVS financially, or reach out to us if you’re interested in getting involved in the local program!
