Health Huts: Mental Health is Gratitude

SKOServe: Culture Shock

 5–6:30 p.m.  UMC 418
When we serve communities that are different from our own, or when volunteering exposes us to someone else’s experience that is very different from what we know, we can experience a form of culture shock. This Volunteer Resource Center training offers skills for how to cope with challenges and embrace navigating differences in order to build resilience and volunteer more effectively.

The Ways We Name Ourselves: In the Indigenous Community

 5–6:30 p.m.  C4C, Abrams Lounge
Words matter. And they change over time as we change as people and communities. Join in the conversation around the terms we use in our communities, how we name ourselves and how we don’t always agree across our own communities on those terms.
