Make the Most of Technology Available to You
Technology has important effects on business operations whether you are a not for profit, small
organization or manage a team. No matter the size of your enterprise, technology has both tangible and intangible benefits that will help you streamline processes and ensure your communications reach the audience you need. Technological infrastructure affects the culture, efficiency and relationships of an organization.

This toolkit has been created to cover a large range of technology that is available for communities to use to assist in the great work they do and to meet the demands of modern society.

Spotlight Story: Local Curling Volunteer Wins Prestigious Award
Like so many other sports in smaller communities, curling simply doesn't happen without the input of numerous volunteers. One such volunteer at the Bienfait Curling Club earned an award from Curl Sask recently for all the work he's done to grow the game in the southeast.

Ken Bonokoski was named the winner of a Walter Ort Curl Sask Volunteer Award yesterday for his dedicated work. The award is handed out annually to volunteers who, in the words of Curl Sask, work quietly behind the scenes or are an active leader of the club.

South East District has compiled COVID-19 updates and resources applicable to sport, culture and recreation on our website resources page.

Celebrate Saskatchewan Multicultural Week - November 1-30, 2020
Who’s Your Multicultural Superhero?
Multicultural Superheroes inspire everyone to create welcoming and inclusive communities!

They act as a metaphor for how all types of business can learn to better engage their customers and the public. They help students and teachers see possibilities to celebrate cultural diversity, and identify and challenge discrimination. Multicultural Superheroes show community organizations how to inspire others to engage in their cause. All levels of Government can learn why multiculturalism matters and how it can better implement the Saskatchewan Multiculturalism Act.

Saskatchewan has so much to celebrate and there are so many multicultural superheroes that the campaign runs from November 1-30.

Share about your multicultural superhero on social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) using #multiculturalsuperhero and challenge others to do the same. Get creative; the sky is the limit!
What Do You Need to Be A Coach?
Wherever there is an athlete, there is a coach. While some coaches start out as athletes, most are parents, teachers, sport fans, and community members who want to be part of a sport they love and make a difference. Sport-specific National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) training is available in the NCCP Community, Competition, and Instruction streams through more than 65 National Sport Organizations and 13 Provincial / Territorial Coaching Representatives across Canada. Training is available through In-Class, Online, eLearning, and Home Study formats. Coaches can complete workshops in a few days, a single evening, or even a few hours.
