On the Horizon…
These are some programs that the Volunteer Resource Committee has in development:

The WSO Volunteer Orientation Document
[in development]
This document will offer ACA members, who are just arriving to World Service, some clarity as
to the way committee work is approached, the role of volunteers, the structure of WSO, and the
rights and responsibilities of all participants.

Service Wellness 24/7
Service Wellness Program
An opportunity for members doing service to find fellowship and support through conversation in
a gentle and respectful atmosphere. We will find support through the sharing of our experience,
strength and hope with our colleagues.

Consider Service at WSO
[in development]
This will be an abbreviated program, like the one offered originally as ‘Volunteer Day’. With the
help of speakers describing their service journeys and WSO committee leaders explaining their
efforts, we will introduce ACA members to opportunities to be of service.
