Periodically the National Office will hold Continuing Education sessions for program leaders and BeFrienders. The sessions are typically held in the St. Paul/Mpls Metro area.

If you are outside the Twin Cities metro area, and would be interested in hosting a session for Program leaders and BeFrienders in your region, please contact us for more information.

Roundtable Discussion for Leaders

YOU SPOKE AND WE LISTENED. . .
An overwhelming response from the feedback of our recent “Shape the Future of BeFriender Ministry” is the request to have more networking opportunities for BeFriender Leaders. Sometimes, it’s nice to gather with other BeFriender Leaders for a short conversation and a bit of learning. That’s why we are offering to facilitate a time to network and share questions, insights, best practices, resources, and support.

On February 6, we are hosting a ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION FOR LEADERS at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church in Bloomington. We are offering both a morning and an evening session to accommodate a variety of schedules and encourage your participation.

Date: Thursday, February 6

Time Options: 9:30am-11:30am or 6:30pm-8:30pm

Location: St. Bonaventure Catholic Church 901 East 90th Street, Bloomington (Enter door #2, along 10th Avenue)

Fee: $20 per person, registration received by January 24
