Please click here to check out our minutes from meetings between Feb 17 and Feb 25!
Hello Brigaders!
I hope everyone is doing well. As you know, we are over half-way done with winter quarter. Which means...
Our trip to Honduras is 5 months away!
It is time to start working on the most entertaining part of the brigade (at least in my opinion), Charla! This is a time where volunteers teach children about brushing their teeth and eating a healthy diet in a kid-friendly way. Hand puppets and dancing are a must.
However, fluency in Spanish is not mandatory. During a Charla, we mostly communicate with pictures and movements (someone even played Spanish music on his phone while dancing for the kids as they brushed their teeth). So no worries if you studied another language (say....French...) for five years and have never taken Spanish (like moi).
If you are interested in participating in Charla this year, please let me know at noelle.gross12@gmail.com, including your name and availability. We will form a mini-group within the brigade and bring the rest of the group up to speed right before we leave for Honduras. 

See ya around!
Noelle

Hello Brigaders!

About 6 more months to go before we go down to Honduras! Hence, there are a few mandatory meetings coming up. We need to start preparing for this event as per the Global Brigades (parent organization) guidelines. We have scheduled three meetings to orient you to some of the important steps that you will need to take to make this brigade a success. The information presented during these meetings is mandatory information, so please make every effort to attend one of the following (the meetings will all cover the same information, so no need to attend more than one ~ although they will also be a good opportunity to meet other brigaders!).

Tuesday, February 17, 5:30 - 7:00 pm (on campus ~ room TBD)
Wednesday, February 18, 12:00 noon - 1:30 pm (on campus ~ room TBD)
Saturday, February 21, 6:00 - 7:30 pm (off campus ~ place TBD)


Thank you and we hope to see you there!
