We are excited to present our June Impact Saturday!

We will be offering grab and go lunches after all the workshops!

The following workshops will be offered:

Awana Volunteer Training- Awana training is offered to new Awana volunteers, returning volunteers, or anybody who would like to learn more about the Awana children and youth bible study ministry.

Effective Strategies for Personal Career Development- So, it is at the halfway mark of the year and your thinking to yourself, what is the story that I want to be able to tell about my accomplishments for 2019? During this session on Effective Strategies for Personal Career Development, you will be equipped with the tools you need to raise the bar for the rest of the year. We will be discussing the TOP TEN THINGS that you can do now to transform your year and how to effectively market yourself to your dream career. This workshop will be facilitated by the leaders of the Career Development Ministry.

Immigration Law Program on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)/"Dreamers"- Are you a "Dreamer" or know someone who is? Find out your or your loved one's rights under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. This event is open to both Alfred Street members and the general public. Additionally, 1.5 hours of free Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit will be offered to members of the Virginia State Bar.

Impact 2020- 'Impact 2020' will focus on the upcoming U.S. Census and how critically important the count is in determining funding to states for health care and infrastructure and the allocation of representatives in Congress and in state legislatures. There will be panelists including a U.S. Census representative who will provide the general overview, and representatives each from Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia to discuss redistricting gerrymandering, and other efforts that are critically important to these jurisdictions as the 2020 census approaches.

Ready to Serve: A training to serve ASBC's children with special needs- Do you have the desire to serve in one of our children's ministries? Do you already serve in a children's ministry? Our Special Needs Committee is offering this new training to equip volunteers to serve our children with special needs. We are looking for volunteers to serve as buddies to work one-on-one with our children in our ministries as well as training current volunteers to be better prepared to work with all our children. Please join this exciting, meaningful, and flexible initiative to serve our children.

Talk and Be Heard: Sharpen Your Communication Skills- Want to become a better communicator? The DiSC Personality assessment offers a simplified way of identifying your preferred style of communication - and the styles of others. This interactive and fun class with Minister Rasheem Rooke fosters discussion and idea sharing in a cooperative educational environment. Find out how the DiSC factors (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance) predict your behavior towards others and the everyday things you do. Participants will create a personalized strategy that can help them effectively interact with others who have a preferred communication style, based on personality type, which is different from their own.

The Confident You: Taking Charge of Your Life- Take charge of your life by understanding and accessing a more CONFIDENT YOU!! In this interactive workshop based on the latest "grit" scholarship, participants will begin to explore the relationships among emotional, cognitive, physical, and social development. There will be a focus on assessing our capacities for awareness, assertiveness, and self-reflection. Most importantly, attendees will explore passion and perseverance, while identifying tools and tips for continued success at taking charge of life.

Video of Alexandria residents discuss the 1939 Alexandria Library sit-in- The video will describe one of America's first sit-ins that took place at Alexandria Library on Friday, August 21, 1939. African Americans decided to protest by staging a sit-in because although they voted and paid taxes, they were not allowed to use the library.
