The Foundation will hold an informational webinar on Tuesday, August 5, at 2:00 p.m., to allow interested community members to fully understand the new program. The webinar is for anyone interested in the Program, even if you did not attend the Information Sessions held in July.
Community Development Works, a program of The Rapides Foundation, is offering skill-building training for Cenla residents and nonprofits. All workshops and webinars are available free of charge. Webinars are only one hour long from 11 a.m.-noon and can be accessed from most devices using the GoToWebinar app. Workshops take place at The Rapides Foundation Building, 1101 Fourth St., Alexandria.
The Rapides Foundation’s 2012 Annual Report is available online and in print. The Foundation is again presenting the report two ways to appeal to a wider audience. “In addition to our traditional print version, our online element allows us to tell our story using videos, photos and graphics,” President and CEO Joe Rosier said.
More than 350 Cenla youths and teachers came together at the 2013 Youth Summit on Healthy Behaviors to learn how to become advocates for healthy choices and policy changes in their schools and communities. Participants will use the summit training to implement Diet and Physical Activity and Tobacco Prevention and Control grants funded by The Rapides Foundation during the 2013-14 school year.
Community Development Works (CDW), a program of The Rapides Foundation, is offering a free webinar series on Nonprofit Online Marketing presented by Social Media Consultant, Lauren Coudrain.
