“Not in it Alone” Information Session

Wednesday, April 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Members & guests – free.

This information session will be presented over Zoom, and the informational portion will be recorded. Online RSVP for this program has ended, but you may contact the Village office to join or receive the recording. Call us at 773.248.8700.

Join us for an informal information session about Not in it Alone, a new offering from Liz Metzger and The Village Chicago.

Not in it Alone is an 8-week program with the goal of improving participants’ understanding of how to maintain and expand social networks.  Creating connections requires much more than just being around people. Building a strong internal foundation based on confidence, a knowledge of self, and an awareness of how to use resources available both within and outside the village will create a sustainable path for moving forward with more complete and fulfilling friendships.

The program will launch in early May. Come join us to learn more and see if Not in it Alone is for you!
