    I have previous confirmed that I will attend all of the three days (Oct 15,22, 29)
    This is just to reconfirm. Thank you for giving us this wonderful opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills we need be prepared for civic engagement and also to pass on to others what we will have learned.

    I feel that civic engagement more that social services will empower and encourage individuals to navigate their environment so they can be e Socially involved, politically engaged and economically productive, to be self-sufficient and contributing members of the society.
    WAY TO GO!

  • I’m emailing too to make sure. But I wanted to make sure you confirmed / registered with the college.

    I’m just promoting the event here because I thought it was a great opportunity and enjoyed it when I did it. I’m not actually running the event myself.

    But I very much agree with everything that was said! Thank you!
