What you need to know
The Acts of Kindness Project
Kindness is free, let's pass it on!
Learn something, love it, and pass it on. This is the Acts of Kindness Project.
Do you have a hobby, a passion, a skill that you would like to share with others? During the height of Covid our community rallied together to share a little kindness. Teaching their neighbours things they love and enjoy.
Now we're calling community members to take part in teaching in Acts of Kindness 2.0!
Don’t worry we won’t make you go in teaching unprepared. We will be holding training so you can lead your very own workshop!
See below for workshop details and sign up today!
The Power of Kindness
All workshops will be held on Thursdays at 6.15pm.
Summer of Kindness - supporting 16 Days of Activism
Classes will be held live via ZOOM.
It's not a pre-recording and will be like our other classes: engaging and interactive with small groups.
It is very easy to join!
Step one: sign up for an online class through Eventbrite (registration for individual workshops above).
Step two: visit the ZOOM website or download ZOOM Cloud Meetings app on the Apple store or Google Play.
Step three: you will receive an email prior to the class starting, with a meeting link and instructions (click the link or insert the meeting ID and password into the ZOOM app).
Step four: ensure your webcam/phone camera is on so that our teacher can see and guide you through the class.
