    St. Vincent de Paul Society is looking for volunteers to help with their fall session of the Coming Together to Get Ahead (CGTA) program. This is a locally run 17 week facilitated workshop provided to Streator residents living in poverty. It is aimed at helping the participants learn more about their situation, poverty in general, community resources available to them, how to make good choices and decisions, and developing skills that will help make them more successful in the work force. The goal is to help the participants identify things they can do to improve their own living and financial situation. We need 1 or 2 volunteers to join the Facilitator Team to help run the workshop this year. No previous experience is necessary. Training and materials are provided, and you will work with an experienced Facilitator throughout the workshop. We also need volunteers to serve as Mentors as part of this program. For more information about this program, please call our Help Line at 815-672-3687. Please continue to pray for the success of this program.
