Thanks to Merck for their funding of this program.
S2T is an effort by the AIDS Bereavement & Resiliency Program of Ontario to respond to the needs of long-term survivors for supportive ways to address multiple loss.
ACCKWA has participated in many S2T Retreats with ABRPO throughout our history. Since the creation of ACCKWA’s TTOA WG, Peers have been trained in facilitation so that they could create a larger scope for supporting their Peers.
After feedback from Peers and participants our S2T retreat looks much different than the multiple loss journey. The agenda is all about growth, building skills and self-care learning. Our Peer Facilitators develop retreat activities that focus on motivation and how to support each other. The retreat usually happens in May and all PHAs in Waterloo & Wellington Regions are welcome to register. There are limited spots and all applicants will be notified whether or not they are accepted. For more information contact The Coordinator of Volunteers & Peer Engagement.
The retreat is 3 days at Crieff Hills Retreat and Conference Centre – 7098 Concession 1, Puslinch in a camp setting with shared accommodations in rooms of 2-3 bunkbeds.
This is a working retreat with self-care activities on the agenda. The Peers strive to create a supportive atmosphere that provides opportunity to learn how to develop skills and build the capacity for each individual.
