The University of the Fraser Valley will host an informational event and forum on education options in the community of Hope on Thursday, April 16 from 11 am to 1:30 pm.
Some of the topics covered will include career transitions, student transitions, workshops, certificates, diplomas, developing content specific to Hope, community partners, co-curricular records, and university student life.
“UFV is excited to be offering this free event so people interested in exploring educational options and those wanting input into new programming can participate,” says Michelle Vandepol, UFV Hope Centre coordinator.
This event is for all community agencies, including social service agencies, Aboriginal groups, public libraries, schools, interfaith and multicultural groups, public health, literacy & support workers, students, and volunteers.
Several UFV departments will be represented at the event and speakers include human resources consultant Sieglinde Malmberg, UFV student transitions coordinator Sidrah Ahmad, and Derek Ward-Hall, who will speak about UFV’s co-curricular record, an opportunity for students to receive formal recognition of their volunteer work.
Free registration for the day, which includes speakers, workshops, lunch, and refreshments, is available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 604-869-9991.
