BETHEL — The Oxford County Wellness Collaborative will offer a training opportunity for anyone wanting to learn to hold conversations that foster trust, commitment and a sense of belonging from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20. The “Restorative Community Training” will be offered at the Gem Theater, 23 Cross St.

The training is ideal for people who would like to participate in or facilitate meaningful, respectful conversations. The training has also been shown to empower participants to directly address personal and community improvement.

The training is free. The priority is to make the experience available to everyone who is interested. Those who find the training valuable are asked to make a donation so the collaborative can offer additional training opportunities.

Help with childcare and transportation is available; call Emily at 207-739-6222.

Food and drinks will be provided for all participants.

The collaborative’s mission is to engage all community members in working together to transform personal, environmental and economic health by building strong relationships among people and organizations. The group is grounded in the belief that individuals and organizations are most effective when working together toward a common goal rather than separately trying to reach the same goal.

The collaborative is administered by Healthy Oxford Hills, a healthy community coalition and a department of Stephens Memorial Hospital.
