The South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race is offering its Civic Engagement Institute in 2016 for the fourth year. These free workshops consist of four three-hour sessions that include a personal Meyers-Briggs personality profile and analysis; time management and productivity tips; group dynamics training and exercises; interactions with local governments and organizations about their volunteer opportunities.

In return for this training, participants agree to volunteer for at least 6 months with a local organization of their choice. Sessions will be held at the South Orange Public Library, 65 Scotland Rd. from 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on February 20, February 27, March 5, and March 12. To register, email info@twotowns.org or call 973-761-6116.
