Help shape men’s services in Golden

Your Golden Family Center Men’s Services team is looking for local men to help define men's support services in the community.

The Golden Family Centre asking local men to fill out a short survey about men's services in town.

Dear Men of Golden,

Your Golden Family Center Men’s Services team is looking for local Men to help define and understand men’s support services in your community (e.g. parental leave, service clubs, motorsport clubs, counselling support, addictions services, outdoor groups, music jams, etc).  We would like to know which support services you are already using, and which ones you think are missing.

We are also hoping you will give us your view of how society sees ‘masculinity’ and ‘being a man’, and how you might re-define it – or not.

Please help us by contributing to the following short survey: www.surveymonkey.com/s/L6VHR6F >>

If you are interested in participating in discussion, group belonging, and learning a little about who the fellow Men in your community are, please include your email or phone number at the end of the survey.

The results of this survey will help us to develop services and secure ongoing funding for the specific needs of men in Golden.  Stay tuned for the outcomes.

The Men’s Services team is an initiative of the Golden Family Center with support from the East Kootenay Addictions Services Society (Courage to Connect) and the Columbia Basin Trust.
