October 3, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
We invite you to join us for our workshop – Sending Canadians volunteers abroad: Lessons Learned and Best Practices regarding Security and Prevention from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). The workshop will take place on Thursday Oct. 3 from 1 pm to 4.30 pm. The workshop will be facilitated by BCCIC and Global Affairs Canada at the BCCIC offices in the Sun Wah building in Chinatown, 268 Keefer Street in Unit 311 on the third floor. During this event we will explore how to mobilize citizens from BC within the new security and PSEA contexts, lessons learned from organizations who send Canadians abroad and the intricacies of sending young Canadians abroad. There will also be an opportunity to work in sub-groups in a participatory format. This event will be followed by a networking event open to the general public from 5 pm to 7 pm.
