Family Leadership Weekend – Moving from Vision to Action: Stories and Strategies to Build the Good Life
July 29, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - July 31, 2016 @ 2:00 pm
The Outlook, Boonah
“Nobody offers you the good life on a plate, you need to go out and seek it” (Connie Young).
This weekend will help families be clearer on HOW to move boldly and strategically in the direction of their dreams. It will present ideas and examples to break down steps for planning a good life – whether the goal is inclusion in school, neighbourhood and community, building an adult life of home and work, or pursuing passions and contributions.
This weekend is for families who want to be more intentional about building a rich, included life for their family member.
Families will build on a vision and knowledge of their family member’s gifts to work out how to:
- create valued roles,
- build networks of support
- make better judgments about priorities
- maintain hope and momentum
Who should attend?
This event is a live-in event to maximise the opportunities for families to connect with the presenters and each other, and to feel renewed. ALL members of the family can attend, or an individual can register to attend on their own. Childcare or support by a worker will be available to cover times when adults attend workshop sessions.
Who will be presenting?
The website will be updated shortly. Please view the flyer above for a full list of presenters.
I am interested in attending. How do I apply?
There is an expression of interest (EOI) process to attend. Apply by Friday 24 June. The EOI process helps us ensure the event is a good match for participants. It also helps with logistics (room allocations and the children’s program) and determining what we can offer in relation to requests for assistance.
Online registration and payment processing will follow allocation of places.
SPACES ARE LIMITED SO EARLY SUBMISSION OF THE EOI FORM IS ENCOURAGED.
