Community Engagement Fair

Monday, March 27th, 5:00-7:00pm at the Methow Valley Community Center, Twisp.
Free and open to everyone

Come learn about the Methow Valley’s nonprofit organizations and opportunities to volunteer!  Sponsored by the Methow Conservancy’s GenNxt Project, this community Fair is the first time all the diverse organizations active in the Methow Valley have been asked to come together in one place to share who they are, what they do, and what volunteer opportunities they have.  It’s an opportunity for everyone in our community (not just the 40 and under GenNxt folks) to learn more about issue-specific work happening here and ways to get involved as a volunteer.

The free “Community Engagement Fair” is Monday, March 27th from 5:00-7:00pm at the Methow Valley Community Center gym in Twisp. 

The fair will feature over 40 local organizations (see a list below) at individual tables, a kids’ activity corner so that parents can roam, and snacks and drinks.  There will also be­ a few short presentations in a special side-stage.  Attendees can choose to attend the following mini-presentations:

  5:30 – 5:45pm - Volunteering 101
6:00 – 6:15pm - Board Member Basics
6:30 – 6:45 – Methow Action volunteering website show-and-tell
7:00 – 7:15 – Who and what is Methow GenNxt? (for organizations at the Fair and anyone who wants to stay a little longer)

Participating Organizations

The idea for the Community Engagement Fair came from the Methow Conservancy’s GenNxt Project, which is an effort to engage, learn from and support the next generation of young adult leaders in our community. These energized 20 and 30-somethings are interested in learning more about how organizations are working to address issues they care about, and how they can get involved.  The fair is specifically open to anyone in the community with the hope that it will be a unique and engaging opportunity for community members of all ages to mix and mingle while learning about the diverse organizations in the Methow and ways to get involved.
