In early September, SafeLink Alberta had a Staff Wellness Team Building Day. We brought our two teams from Calgary and Medicine Hat together in Brooks, Alberta. The day was a huge success! SafeLink Alberta staff were able to relax and spend time together as a team.
We started with a guided drum circle, where everyone could get together and play in sync with the group. Next, the staff built signs for each other’s drop-in spaces.
After lunch, the team competed against one another in Family Feud. Lastly, we all got together to try to learn a dance routine (there is a reason none of us are professional dancers). This was an excellent way for us to spend time together, have fun, and learn new things.
Harm reduction work can get heavy. However, we believe that having fun and supporting our staff is essential. The team had fun together, and we’re all the better for it.
