Upcoming Workshops

There is a need in the south east to offer education and training to individuals in communities to provide opportunities for them to grow as community leaders. The purpose of the South East District Workshop Series is to reduce financial and transportation barriers by providing workshops in communities to address multiple issues within sport, culture and recreation.
