The AIDS Vancouver Grocery program is so very pleased to let you know about our most recent partnership. We have recently been selected as one of the Community partners to receive fruit from the Vancouver Fruit Tree Project.
This is a dedicated non profit group whose volunteers harvest extra fruit from backyard fruit trees and redistribute it to community groups. In the past 13 years they have picked more than 40,000 pounds of fruit and redistributed it to community centres, neighbourhood houses, daycares and other community groups. Amazing!
Health Mentors have an opportunity to play an important role in the education of future health professionals because they will work with a group of students in the early formative stages of their education and development as professionals. This important educational contribution by mentors will be formally recognized through certificates of participation and a concluding reception. Mentors will have their travel expenses for the orientation and symposium events reimbursed.
This is a new program; mentors will have an opportunity to shape how it develops in the future. Mentors will be invited to give feedback through evaluation questionnaires and interviews or focus groups. A small honorarium to cover expenses will be provided for this additional time commitment.
