Our new cancellation policy going forward:
In-person trainings will be confirmed, canceled, or post-poned NO LESS than 60 days prior to the start of training.
If you plan to attend one of our trainings, please don't wait to sign up until the last minute. We will be making the "go/no go" decision at the 60 day mark.
Trainings could be canceled or postponed due to lack of attendees enrolled OR due to the ever-changing and ongoing COVID (or any health) situation. Trainings are dependent on working with teachers and volunteers living with Scleroderma. As such, they are in the high-risk category for any health pandemic, making it unsafe for them to travel or be in group settings. Additionally, volunteers may need advanced planning time for travel arrangements due to medical considerations they need to consider. We don't want to leave anyone scrambling at the last minute.
Thank you for bearing with us as we navigate these times!
