Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-op Seeking Participants for Focus Groups

The sessions are set for January 2015 and an honourarium of $40 and refreshments will be provided.

The Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative (the Koop) is inviting residents from Nakusp, Creston and Castlegar to participate in their Focus Group sessions  addressing the delivery of community social services programs.

The sessions are set for January 2015 and an honourarium of $40 and refreshments will be provided.

Says Koop Executive Coordinator, Prudence Elise Breton, “We are aiming for a diverse group of 6-8 residents in each municipality. We are looking forward to learning more about how the public perceives community services organizations through this project.”

“We are encouraging individuals to apply who are 21 or older,  have resided in the region for 5 years or more and who are not currently employed (or do not have immediate family employed) by a social services organization or related Ministry.”

The project requires a time commitment of one evening — 1.5 to 2 hours. To apply to participate, email theresa@thekoop.ca to request an application form go to fluidsurveys.com/surveys/thekoop/2014-focus-group-survey.

The Kootenay Boundary Community Services Co-operative  is a member based organization and  works toward a vision of thriving community social service agencies, improving the quality of life in the Kootenay Boundary region through an active, effective, and credible network. The Koop delivers and co-ordinates resources and services provided by and for its members. For more information, visit www.thekoop.ca.
