Imagine doing something you always wanted to do.
Do you have talents and skills that you want to develop?
Do you have a hobby?
Do you have a business idea? Would you like to be able to grow your own business? Would you like to develop your idea without spending a lot of money?
Perhaps you just want a part-time business where you make about $200 per month. Maybe you just want to volunteer some time for a little compensation.
Then consider joining the Peterborough LETS Community. Through the LETS, you can sell your goods or services. The LETS will help you start a business and test the market.

We build resilient, more connected communities, enhance access to resources, and create meaningful opportunities for people to engage and participate in community life.
PEER ADVOCACY TRAINING
The Peer Advocacy Training Program is a 10-12 week intensive course that provides leadership opportunities for people experiencing poverty and marginalization. The training is designed to address the root causes of poverty and identify ways to engage and create change. To learn more, email email@example.com.
I am in this training program. I would like to know what you think are some important tasks or projects the advocates could help with in our community? All ideas are welcome. You can call me Lori Sainte at 705 749 9977 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
