Volunteers we need you, with you inspiration and motivation to serve as a board member on the Management Board of HALLA (Harlaw Area Lifelong Learning Association).
We are a Board of people who run daytime and evening classes at Kaimhill Learning Centre.
We have a FB page ( @HALLACommunity) where you can see some of our activities and tutored classes.
We meet once a month to discuss new opportunities and management issues, to find new ways of how-to bring people of all ages in the local community into the centre.
We have several weekly, social, informal learning groups where Board members can get to know each other and form a friendly working relationship.
A volunteer should be passionate, enthusiastic and have a keen interest in community matters.
A volunteer does not necessarily require specific skills since we all support each other to develop new skills but if you have specific ones, it would be good to introduce them to the rest of the Board so we can use them to benefit the local community.
The Board would appreciate people with knowledge of IT and office procedures but enthusiasm and interest in the community are equally important.
This is an amazing opportunity to discover your “hidden talents” !!!
You are very welcome to attend a committee meeting and see if this is for you.
WE ARE WAITING TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR FRIENDY AND DIVERSE HALLA BOARD !!!!!
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference for the community. All assistance is greatly appreciated.
For further details please contact Giuseppina Caligiuri, HALLA Vice Chair at email Hallaassociation@gmail.com or telephone: 01224 498 164 / 07511377364.
