Community Awareness Night
Showcase the variety of services and recreational opportunities within your community by running a Community Awareness Night. This can be run in February or in September when the amateur sports groups and local groups can make people aware of their programs.
The gymnasium is set up in a “store front” organization and allows everyone to pick up literature about each service and have questions answered regarding times, cost and availability.
Panel discussions can be held throughout the evening on topics of local or general importance. This can be moderated by students and is an excellent opportunity for them to learn the process of inviting, hosting and thanking speakers.
Groups that would find this type of opportunity suitable in your community:
Community Theatre Groups
Big Brothers -Big Sisters
Martial Arts Clubs
Scouts and Guides
John Howard Society
Parks and Recreation
Relay for Life
