[Atlanta]— [June 1,2014] — Teach One Reach One is excited to announce they will be conducting a workshop at the upcoming National Conference on Volunteering and Service in Atlanta, GA. The conference will be help from June 16-18, 2014 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
The workshop, “Why Does Noah Need Our Old Towels” teaches participants how to increase meaning, spiritual growth, and creativity in their service projects. These enhanced service projects will not only be more productive, but also provide for greater spiritual growth and future retention of volunteers.
Ms. Winnett shared, “We are most excited that churches, and their outreach programs, Bible class teachers and missions efforts will have access to the tools to better train their teams and volunteers. So often any perceived spiritual benefits to participants in service and missions efforts disappear within a few months. This workshop will help leaders better prepare their teams before helping others. These volunteers will not only be more productive for the groups they hope to serve, but the volunteers will also experience more lasting spiritual growth personally. The resulting attachment to those served will also help with the future retention of volunteers. Adding these few tools to the leader’s toolbox will help everyone involved receive the maximum benefits from service and mission work.”
As a part of the workshop, Teach One Reach One will also help familiarize participants with the host of free resources available to them on the Teach One Reach One website. In addition to the teaching and parenting blogs and other resources found on the Teach One Reach One website, there are free lesson plans and activity ideas which were created using educational best practices. The lessons incorporate Bible, spiritual growth, service, basic literacy skills (language, math, and science), health, and sustenance survival skills. Workshops like the one being conducted at the conference can be brought to locations around the world for a minimal fee. The lessons, activities and workshops are hands-on, experiential, and designed to have maximum impact on the participants.
