Welcome Courtney.

The Abundance Project and St. Paul’s United Church, Warkworth are pleased to announce that Courtney Good has joined our team as Youth Programming Coordinator. Courtney brings great skills in event and program management, communications, and volunteer management. Her enthusiasm for young people is amply demonstrated by her previous volunteer work at Camp Oochigeas, a camp for kids affected by childhood cancer, and her local work as a Brownie leader here in Warkworth.

Courtney’s main focus will be on developing and delivering day camp programming for teacher PA days and the March break period. Expect to see exciting news in the coming weeks as Courtney and the Abundance team develop the League of Curious Kids program to be offered to our local primary school-aged children. If you would like to be notified when registration opens, or you have any questions please email Courtney at leagueofcuriouskids@gmail.com.

The Youth Programming Coordinator position is funded by the Emerging Spirit Innovation Grant program of the United Church of Canada.

Orange Shirt Day
Sunday, September 29, 2019 will be Orange Shirt Day at St. Paul’s. We are all going to try and find an orange shirt to wear.
“Wearing an orange shirt and promoting the slogan, Every Child Matters, is an affirmation of our commitment to raise awareness of the residential school experience and to ensure that every child matters as we focus on our hope for a better future in which children are empowered to help each other.”
