Episcopal Charities' Sustainability Institute offers a series of workshops for parish-based and parish-supported outreach programs in the Episcopal Diocese of New York. These sessions provide a forum in which to network, ask questions, gain valuable resources, and learn from experts in the field - all with the goal of increasing program sustainability. Priests, program directors, and volunteers are all invited to participate.
Recipients of Episcopal Charities' Basic Human Needs and Youth Opportunity Grants are required to send a representative to each workshop (unless excused due to an emergency). Other outreach program staff and volunteers in the diocese are also invited to attend. Workshops are offered quarterly, on Saturday mornings from 10am-1pm, both in Manhattan at Diocesan House (1047 Amsterdam Ave), and in Poughkeepsie at Christ Church (20 Carroll Street).
