    How long have you lived/worked in Holland?

    I have worked in Holland for almost one year. It will be one year on 10/07/09.

     

    What besides being HYP do you like to do (Hobbies)?

    I enjoy going to see local live music, checking out any new and interesting events in the area and just spending time with my friends and family. I’d love to do more traveling in the future. J

     

    What do you like best about HYP, or if you’re a new member, what drew you to HYP?

    Because I didn’t grow up in Holland, when I started working here I was interested in having the chance to network with fellow young professionals from the area and did a little internet searching and found HYP.

     

    Our President, Mr. Hill, is a funny guy; he’d like you to tell us a joke.  He’s always looking to add to his own collection.

    Mmmmm. This is a tough one.  I wouldn’t say I’m the best “joke teller” so I think I’ll leave that talent solely to Mr. Hill.

    Lakeshore Alliance Against Domestic and Sexual Violence (LAADSV), along with Grand Valley State University Women’s Center, is excited to offer a unique professional development opportunity for you, staff members and volunteers at GVSU’s Meijer Campus. The LAADSV mission is “To prevent and reduce the incidence of domestic and sexual violence. To promote safety for victims and families, and to hold abusers and perpetrators accountable. This will be accomplished through coordinated community response, program development, community education, and collaborative activities. These efforts are to be monitored through continual communication, research, and evaluation.” Starting this fall, we will be hosting a noon-series of training and informational sessions on dating/domestic violence and bullying prevention for practitioners and others that work with young people in their professions, schools, churches and neighborhood.

    The noon series will be free of charge for all attendees. We will issue a certificate of completion for individuals attending the series for their professional development. For social workers needing CEU’s for licensing requirements this will be available for $15.

    Our first program will be offered on Thursday, October 8th at 12pm at GVSU Meijer Campus located at 515 S. Waverly Road in Holland. Lesley Coghill will speak on “Preventing Dating Violence”. The second session will be offered by the Michigan State University Extension Team on Tuesday, November 17th (same time and location) called “Mean Girls and Real Boys: Exploring Bullying Through the Lens of Gender and Other Differences”. Please call 616-331-2748 or email womenctr@gvsu.edu and reserve a space for you and your staff members. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches. Beverages and cookies will be provided.

    If you have any questions regarding the above programs please call Jo Ann Wassenaar, Associate Director of the GVSU Women’s Center at 616-331-2748. We are looking forward to offering this excellent training and informational series for you and your employees and volunteers. Community members are encouraged to attend.
