We are excited to announce that St John ACT's Community Education Program, Project Resilience, which aims to build community resilience through delivering free basic first aid training in the ACT will continue in 2017. Project Resilience builds upon existing successful community programs run by St John ACT such as the First Aid in Schools Program that will train over 10,000 primary school children this year.
Our current target audience for Project Resilience is active retirees, seniors and their families and we will be hosting 2 informative and relaxed, first aid information sessions that will be repeated over this year. These sessions will be run by volunteers experienced in providing first aid in our community and will be free to attend. It's estimated they will be about 1.5 hours in duration.
Please feel free to distribute the 2017 Project Resilience flyer and encourage any active retirees you know to attend.
Our volunteers are also attending Rotary, Lions and Probus Clubs as guest presenters presenting on first aid topics of interest and on St John ACT and our activities in the Canberra community. Please contact Twisty at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a speaker seeker at a service club and are interested in having us visit you.
