On the banks of the Swan River, the Heathcote Cultural Precinct in Applecross was the location for the 2018 CVE Metro Connect.
The day was a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to connect and catch up with like-minded people.
Following a brief coffee and mingle, YouthCARE CEO Stanley Jeyaraj started proceedings with a devotion and interviewed long-time volunteer Peter Jackson and CVE field officer Jo-Anne Hodges.
Guest speaker and Kinwomen co-founder Kelley Chisolm shared her story and how important it is to leave a positive imprint on the children.
Following brunch, there was an opportunity for everyone to exchange ideas before closing with a blessing.
Jo-Anne said she enjoyed attending her first-ever Metro Connect.
“I loved seeing all the volunteers gather together, share and encourage one another,” she said. “There was a great atmosphere and a lot of fun sharing Treasure Hunters games ideas. It was a valuable time together and everyone left inspired for their year ahead.”
