Tips of the Week.jpg


TA Tip(s) of the week


We launch our Advent Service projects this week! This is a great time for our advisees to help those in need, but some may not be able to do so.  A great practice is to announce to the group that those who many not be able to contribute financially can speak to you about it in private. 


Please also be mindful as you prepare for your Christmas TA outings that some of your advisees may be feeling the financial strain of Christmas expenses. As you always do, please find creative ways so that all advisees can participate in this wonderful tradition!


Have a great week everyone!​
