The Successful Project – A webinar about self advocacy from The Self-Advocates of Semiahmoo (SAS)

Thu December 3, 2020 @ 2:00 am - 3:30 am PST

Are you a member of a self advocacy group?

Do you want to start one?

This webinar is for you!

  • Learn how to host fun events that get everyone engaged.
  • Learn about fundraising, community development, and creating successful projects.

The Self Advocates of Semiahmoo make change through positive relationships. They are people who are focused on creating a better world for themselves and others, with and without disabilities. SAS has been able to do many different projects that have made them successful in their community and the disability sector.

In this webinar you will learn about fundraising, community development, and creating successful projects!

SAS members, Krista and Michaela, will share with you two of their favorite annual events: The New to You Clothing Sale and their Canada Day Celebrations at White Rock Beach.

SAS will share with you a special checklist that will help you plan, carry out and review projects. It is called the The Successful Project Checklist.

During this presentation we also need you!

We will be asking questions throughout the presentation. We want to hear what you do in your self-advocacy groups and day programs.

There will also be a live chat and 30 minutes at the end to ask questions to the presenters.
