Events

An annual volunteer recognition event is held each year with music, food, speakers and local, state and federal dignitaries recognizing volunteers for their achievements in their tribal communities.  The event site is rotated each year to different tribal locations to support and recognize WI tribal communities and economies.

Trainings

Elder volunteers are required to attend an orientation session to learn about program rules, policies and volunteer assignment.  Once on-board volunteers are also required to attend an in-service session for 2 hours every month.  In-service activities are focused on evidenced based aging programs to support and promote a healthy lifestyle for elders.
