WEEKLY S.A.V.E. WORKSHOPS

We offer unique workshops each week on subjects relating to creating social impact.  S.A.V.E workshops range in subject matter, and include subjects on volunteering,  humanitarian subjects, environmental issues, cultural issues, leadership development and entrepreneurship, …all related to social impact for our cities.

 

 

The S.A.V.E. workshops are either facilitated by SME (subject matter expert), and in many cases, by our S.A.V.E member volunteers who develop social impact projects while volunteering with Serve The City Paris.

 

 

The workshops are usually very interactive, with the intent for the presenter to be a ‘facilitator’ of a discussion around the social impact topic.   Our S.A.V.E. volunteers then provide feedback, ideas and insights on the presenter’s project and complement each other through dialog and collaboration.

 

 

S.A.V.E. Workshops take place at least 3 times per week, every Tuesday evening at the Columbia University Reid Hall campus in Paris 75006, or online (using ZOOM) for our international S.A.V.E. volunteer participants.   All STCP volunteers can sign up for a workshop on the STCP events calendar.   There is no fee for participating in a S.A.V.E. workshop, providing the participant has registered as a STCP volunteer (HERE), and has paid the 10 euro participation fee to volunteer with Serve The City Paris.
