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 firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form go to fluidsurveys.com/surveys/thekoop/2014-focus-group-survey.
