Omega Institute Service Week Opportunity
The WLA is pleased to share a unique opportunity offered by the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. Every Memorial Day week since 2005, Omega Service Week has provided self-led working retreats for nonprofits. Depending on the work they do, nonprofit organizations choose to apply to one of two sessions during Service Week. The Strengthening Communities Summit brings together organizations that enhance community life, prioritizing applicants that address a range of social, economic or environmental issues in the Mid-Hudson Valley (Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Columbia, Putnam and Greene Counties). The Women Serving Women Summit, sponsored by the Omega Women's Leadership Center (OWLC), focuses on groups that are working in particular to serve the interests and needs of women.
Organizations selected to participate in Service Week receive a 2-day, 2-night retreat at Omega, including free:
