Note about 2021-22 Projects
While we can’t know for certain how the project year will look, we do know based on last year's experience that Compass’ program works well virtually. We hope our program can include some valuable in-person components this year including client meeting activities and networking events. That said, we will continue to monitor and evaluate the climate around us, and no volunteer will be obliged to participate in any in-person activities. We are optimistic that we can have the best of both worlds with a hybrid model!
