BECOME A Companion Workshop

Participants will be introduced to the revolutionary Companionship Model, that has five very important tenets: Hospitality, neighboring, side-by-side, listening, and accompaniment. The 3-hour workshop will provide participants an understanding of how to move from a transactional exchange model to a relational engagement model that enables substantial change when helping others. Workshop participants will also learn the importance of integrating Companionship into their organizations and communities.
