Working Advisory Team (W.A.T.)

The Working Advisory Team is made up of young adults, Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto and other resource people. This team meets six times a year to make recommendations to the Director and the Coordinator regarding the growth, ongoing development, programs and resources of Faith Connections. They also act as a sounding board to the Director and the Coordinator. In addition to these meetings the members of the W.A.T. promote Faith Connections and volunteer at Faith Connections events.
